The Iowa Senate voted unanimously Tuesday to confirm the three newly appointed state Board of Regents members.

Gov. Terry Branstad appointed Bruce Rastetter, Kathleen Mulholland, and Nicole Carroll on Feb. 25. They will begin their terms May 1. The three Iowans are replacing Regents Bonnie Campbell, Michael Gartner, and Rose Vasquez.

Rastetter, 54, is a University of Iowa alumnus and CEO of Hawkeye Energy Holdings. He was Branstad’s largest campaign donor in 2010, contributing $160,000.

Kathleen Mulholland, 63, has worked in Iowa education systems since 1975, teaching in Waterloo and Dubuque and serving as assistant superintendent in Ottumwa and Dubuque.

Carroll also has a background in education. The 57-year-old has served as the Carroll, Iowa, K-12 Committee School Board president for six years. She now works with the Iowa Child Advocacy Board as a court-appointed advocate.
