Oilman Kirk Edwards is the latest appointee to serve on the Texas University Lands Advisory Board.

Edwards is president of Houston’s Latigo Petroleum, and was appointed to a three-year term by the University of Texas System Board of Regents last month.

And Paul L. Foster was appointed to succeed former regent Alex Cranberg as regents vice chairman, while Jeffery Hildebrand, Hilcorp Energy Company‘s founder and co-chairman, has been appointed chairman of the advisory board.
