JC attorney named newest MU curator

A Jefferson City attorney is the newest member of the University of Missouri system's board of curators.

Pamela Henrickson was named to the board by the governor last August.

But the senate appointments committee did not sign off on the appointment until Wednesday morning.

The full senate confirmed the nomination in the afternoon.

Another Nixon curators appointee, Columbia attorney Craig Van Matre, will be considered in committee next week.
