Dan Flanagan of Campbellsville was re-elected vice chair and Pam Miller of Lexington was re-elected to a second term as chair of the Council on Postsecondary Education recently. The Council is the state's higher education and adult education coordinating agency.

Flanagan, who was appointed to the Council in 2005, operates a large farming business. He formerly served as the deputy commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture, had several positions at Campbellsville University and is a retired pastor.

"I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve on the Council and be a part of this important work for Kentuckians, especially in today's economy where some form of higher education is more important than ever before," Flanagan said.

The former mayor of Lexington-Fayette County, Miller was appointed to the Council in 2008 and served as vice chair from February 2010 until December 2011.
