BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A screening committee wants applicants for

two openings on North Dakota's Board of Higher Education.

North Dakota state school superintendent Wayne Sanstead is

chairman of the panel. He says people who are interested in serving

should apply to his office by 5 p.m. March 25.

The Board of Higher Education has eight voting members. The

four-year terms of incumbents Duaine (duh-WAYNE) Espegard

(ES-puh-gard) of Grand Forks and Sue Andrews of Mapleton are ending

July 1.

Espegard has served for three years, and he's eligible for

appointment to a second four-year term. Andrews has served the

maximum of two four-year terms.

Gov. John Hoeven will pick the new board members from a list of

three finalists for each opening.
