Correction: Bill Heavener, an alumnus and longtime supporter of the University of Florida whose name will grace the new academic building under construction in the Warrington College of Business Administration, was appointed Wednesday to the UF Board of Trustees. An earlier version of this article misreported the building that will carry Heavener's name.

Bill Heavener, an alumnus and longtime supporter of the University of Florida and CEO of one of the largest private universities in the country, has been named to fill a vacancy on the UF board of trustees.

Gov. Rick Scott made the announcement Wednesday in a news release, along with appointing a second trustee, Dr. Jason Rosenberg, a plastic surgeon in Gainesville.

Heavener, 65, is president of the Heavener Company and chief executive officer of Full Sail University. His name will grace the new academic building under construction in the Warrington College of Business Administration.

Rosenberg, 44, received his medical degree from the University of Florida, the news release stated.

Both appointments are subject to the Florida Senate's approval and would run from June 19 to Jan. 6, 2016, according to the news release.
