The board of regents of the Texas Tech University System named JuliAnn Mazachek as the sole finalist to be the twelfth president of Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas.

My family and I are thrilled about the opportunity to join the Mustangs family and Wichita Falls community, and I look forward to working closely with the accomplished scholars and distinguished faculty, staff, and alumni at MSU Texas. We have a great future ahead of us.”
