An attorney from suburban Indianapolis has been elected to an alumni seat on the Indiana University Board of Trustees.

The university says MaryEllen Bishop of Carmel received 3,773 of the 14,444 votes cast for seven nominees. She finished ahead
of retired Indianapolis attorney Kent Agness, who received 2,963 votes.

Bishop has business and law degrees from IU and she was national chairwoman of the IU Alumni Association in 2007-08. Her
husband and two children also are IU graduates.

She replaces Sue Talbot of Carmel, who didn't seek re-election after serving three three-year terms.

Three of IU's nine trustees are elected by alumni, with the governor appointing the others.
