Sambursky Named To SIU Board

The Governor is appointing a former Saluki Quarterback to the SIU Board of Trustees.
Pat Quinn appointed Joel Sambursky to a five year term. Samburksy played from 2002 until 2004 and was inducted into the Saluki Hall of Fame in 2012. Sambursky is a financial adviser at Liberty Wealth Management LLC in Carbondale and serves on the board of directors for the Carbondale Community Arts. 
He is also the former president and executive director of the Carbondale Chamber of Commerce.
He holds a MBA and a Bachelors of Science from Southern Illinois University.
Sambursky's selection comes after the state Senate rejected previous Quinn appointments to the university board. That happened after a power struggle at SIU and a fight over the way the Senate provides advice and consent on appointments.

The Senate must approve the appointment of Sambursky.
