David Aubrey of Homer, Louisiana (far right in the picture) has landed a new role as a member of the Louisiana Board of Regents.

Aubrey was nominated and appointed by Governor John Bel Edwards and took oath of office at the Board’s first meeting of 2023 Jan. 9, 2023. The Grambling State University graduate, class of ’95, studied Public Administration, and has also served as president of the University’s Student Government Association.

Currently as the Vice President of External and Legislative Affairs at AT&T Louisiana, his background and former professional experience includes, Executive Director at Strategic Action Council of Northwest Louisiana, and Project Manager for Community and Economic Development at Southern University, and Grambling University Foundation Board Member.

Being sworn into office on this date was also highlighted for Aubrey, as he celebrated Founders Day for the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity of which he is an active member since 1994. In a Facebook post regarding the ceremony of his newly appointed assignment, he referenced the core values of the fraternity: brotherhood, scholarship, and service, and how it has had a great influence on his life.

“Today, as I celebrate Founders Day, I did so by accepting the nomination and appointment to serve as a new member of the Louisiana Board of Regents by Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards, I am honored to serve the citizens of Louisiana on the state’s top policy-making board for higher education. Send up your prayers for me as I make this journey and do my best,” he said.
