The Board of Trustees of the California State University system has commended student trustee Russel Statham of Fresno State for his two years of service.

Statham, who earned a bachelor’s degree in 2009 and his MBA in 2010, will conclude his term as student trustee on June 30, 2010.

A board resolution adopted at the meeting said Statham has “served ably” in the student trustee position and “has been an active voice for more than 433,000 students attending the California State University.”

Statham, a native of Fresno and graduate of Washington Union High School, was active in student government while an undergraduate at Fresno State. He served two-terms as student-body vice president and one term as a state-wide officer for the California State Student Association.

He now works for the California State University, Fresno Auxiliary Corporations as special projects coordinator.
