Goedde Grills Anti-‘Flagship’ Figure

As State Board of Education Member Milford Terrell came up for his confirmation hearing this afternoon in the Senate Education Committee, Chairman John Goedde, R-Coeur d'Alene, grilled him about the board's decision to remove the word “flagship” from the University of Idaho's mission statement. Terrell, who has served on the board since 2003, is a BSU alum and former president of the Bronco Athletic Association. Before he even came in for questioning, Terrell brought up the “flagship” issue. “Of the 73 land grant institutions in the United States, only six include the word flagship” in their mission statements, he told the committee. “Those are lead institutions for a statewide university system”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Question: Would you vote to confirm Milford Terrell's reappointment to the Idaho Board of Education?
