Gov. Matt Mead has appointed a Douglas-based businesswoman and rancher to the University of Wyoming board of trustees, following a member's resignation last week.

Macey Moore owns a real estate firm in Douglas and a sheep and cattle ranch in Converse County, according to a state press release. She will serve the remaining term of Larry Gubbels, also of Douglas, who announced last week that he was resigning because of health concerns.

A UW College of Business graduate, Moore will serve until Feb. 28, 2019. She also serves on the Eastern Wyoming College Douglas Advisory Committee, as well as a number of other volunteer committees and community boards, according to the press release.

“I am honored to have this opportunity and look forward to the challenges ahead," Moore said in a statement. “The University of Wyoming has a growing role in the success of our kids, and that success is the future of our great State.”

Gubbels, a retired auto dealership owner, had been appointed to the board in 2013.
