Danialle Karmanos to resign from WSU Board of Governors


Wayne State University Board of Governors member Danialle Karmanos will resign from the board on Feb. 1, the school announced today. She began her eight-year term on Jan. 1, 2011. She said in a statement she was resigning to spend more time with her family. She is the mother of four boys, all under the age of four. “I know this was a difficult decision for her and I respect her decision,” said incoming Board Chair Debbie Dingell. “She wants to do what is best for both her alma mater and her family. I will deeply miss her on the board, where we all work together for the best of this university.” “Governor Karmanos brought a unique perspective to the board,” said WSU President Allan Gilmour. “Her creativity and passion will be missed.”
