(Lincoln, Nebraska) Governor Pete Ricketts has appointed Chadron State College student Ashley Goad of Pueblo West, Colorado; Peru State College student Treyten Nelson of Lincoln, Nebraska, and Wayne State College student Jayme Krejci of St. Paul, Nebraska, to serve as student representatives on the Nebraska State College System Board of Trustees. The students will serve during the 2017-2018 academic year.

Nelson, a sophomore at Peru State College, is studying business administration, management, marketing and computer management information systems with a minor in organizational management and leadership. He is currently serving as a student trustee for the 2016-2017 academic year, and this will be his second term.  He has previously served as Student Senate Executive Board – sergeant at arms and president of the Residence Hall Association, and is currently a member of the Strategic Planning Committee.  He is CEO and founder of Trey’s Lawn Services of Lincoln, LLC.  During his current term, Nelson worked with his fellow student trustees to revise Board Policy 3400 to increase the credit hour limit of tuition remission scholarships from 16 to 18.  Nelson takes a collaborative approach to his role, stating that student trustees contribute to the Nebraska State College system by “having conversations with other student trustees and student senates in order to identify issues across all the campuses and work together on creating solutions that can better student life for everyone.”

Nelson is the son of Todd and Therine Nelson of Lincoln, Nebraska.
