“I’m proud and honored to be named to the board of regents of my alma mater,” Kuehne said. “The University of North Texas had a profound influence on my life. Working with the other regents will give me the opportunity to continue giving back and helping others working to improve their futures through education.”

He is a member of the UNT President’s Council, UNT McConnell Society and Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity Alumni Advisory Board, and a life member of the UNT Alumni Association and UNT Ex-Letterman’s Association.
