Republican trustee Melanie Foster has conceded the race to Democrats Joel Ferguson and Brian Mosallam.

Ferguson currently serves as the body's chairman.  He says he respects both candidates.
"Brian is a class act," he says. "He will add a lot to the university.  And we lost a lot losing Melanie.  They both put Michigan State first."  

Foster currently serves as vice-chairperson of the board.

Ferguson and Mosallem will begin new eight-year terms on January 1.
