The trustees shall be appointed by the Governor, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate and shall hold office for terms of 12 years, and until their successors shall be appointed and qualified. The trustees serving January 1, 1997, shall serve out the terms for which they had previously been appointed and confirmed.

The one at-large trustee shall serve in a separate class and the initial trustee appointed from area four shall serve with the class whose term expires in 1999. No employee of the Troy State University System shall be eligible to serve as a trustee.
