Senator Leticia Van de Putte Applauds UT System Hiring of Admiral William H. McRaven as Chancellor

State Senator Leticia Van de Putte issues the following statement:

"I applaud the University of Texas System Board of Regents on its choice of Admiral William H. McRaven as the sole finalist to be the next Chancellor of the UT System.

"As Chair of the Texas Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs and Military Installations, I know well the qualities that military veterans can bring to civilian leadership positions. Given McRaven's experience as a Navy SEAL and Commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command, I believe this UT-Austin graduate is more than qualified for a position of such tremendous importance to the future of our state."
