TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – The Kansas Board of Regents has three new members.
The Kansas Senate Confirmation Oversight Committee this week approved the appointments of Dave Murfin of Wichita; Daniel Thomas of Mission Hills; and Dennis Mullin of Manhattan. Gov. Sam Brownback announced the appointments in June.

Murfin is CEO of Murfin Inc., whose interests include Murfin Drilling Co. Inc. and Murphy Tractor and Equipment Co., one of North America’s largest John Deere construction dealerships. Thomas is a periodontist in the greater Kansas City area and Mullin is chairman and CEO of Steel and Pipe Supply, one of the country’s largest steel service centers. All three serve on several boards and advisory groups.
