CANYON -- West Texas A&M University has named Sherri A. Bays the Universitys new vice president for business and finance, pending approval by The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents.

Pending the boards approval, Bays will begin her new role at WTAMU on September 1. 

She is filling a position vacated in January by Gary Barnes, who moved to College Station as Texas A&M Universitys new associate vice president for finance and controller.

As the new vice president for business and finance, Bays will oversee the Universitys budgeting, physical facilities and contract management along with supervising the Accounting and Business Office, the Buff Gold Card Office, University Bookstore, Post Office, University Police Department, Environmental Safety, Human Resources and Purchasing and Inventory Services.

"I am very honored to be joining the West Texas A&M University team," Bays said. "I am excited about the opportunity to work with President OBrien and the entire campus community, a team so dedicated to the students they serve."
