Frank Hancock and Marianne Glick have turned in letters of resignation from the Ball State University Board of Trustees. Each was reappointed to a third terms in 2014. The university says Hancock and Glick will continue serving until successors are identified by Governor Mike Pence.

Hancock and Glick were first appointed to the board in 2006. Their current four-year terms are slated to expire at the end of 2017. The university says their letters of resignation were given to Pence in December.

Frank Hancock is founder and owner of Indianapolis-based Sport Graphics Inc. and has served as vice president and more recently, vice chair, of the nine-member board. He is a 1970 graduate of the school and has been on other prominent boards including the Indianapolis Zoo, Indianapolis 500 Festival, Community Hospital Foundation, Ball State Alumni Association and Indiana Pacers Foundation, as well as president of the Metropolitan School District of Warren Township school board.

Marianne Glick is president and owner of GlickArt. She retired from her role as president of Glick Training Associates Inc. Glick was assistant secretary of the board for the last two years. The Butler University graduate has also served on the board of the Eugene & Marilyn Glick Family Foundation, the Gene B. Glick Co., the Central Indiana Community Foundation, United Way of Central Indiana and the Women's Fund of Central Indiana.

The resignations pre-date the January resignation of Ball State President Paul Ferguson, who will leave the school next month following a board-approved hiatus.
