The Alabama Senate has confirmed nine people, including Clanton attorney Elizabeth Huntley, to serve on the Auburn University Board of Trustees.

Huntley, 41, was initially nominated last year for a seven-year term on the board of trustees, but the selection process had to be redone following a lawsuit and resignation of AU trustee Bobby Lowder.

“Finally,” Huntley said of the process. “I’m looking forward to the experience and to serving the university.”

Other new trustees approved Tuesday were Robert Dumas of Auburn, James Pratt III of Birmingham, M. Clark Sahlie of Montgomery, Ben Tom Roberts of Mobile, Jimmy H. Sanford of Prattville. Trustees who were approved for another term were Jimmy Rane of Abbeville, Sarah Newton of Fayette and Charles McCrary of Birmingham.
