Governor Deval Patrick has appointed Framingham resident and Northeastern University music professor Emmett G. Price III to Massachusetts Bay Community College’s board of trustees, according to school officials. Price is one of the nation’s leading experts on African-American music, culture and religion, school officials said in an announcement on his appointment to the board. An associate professor at Northeastern, Price also served as chairman of the university’s department of African American studies from 2008 until last year. MassBay president John O’Donnell said he is delighted to welcome Price as a trustee, noting that he brings a distinctive perspective to the board. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Price received a bachelor’s degree in music from the University of California Berkeley, and earned master’s and doctoral degrees in ethnomusicology from the University of Pittsburgh. He also studied theology and urban ministry at the Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Hamilton. MassBay has campuses in Framingham and Wellesley Hills, as well as an automotive technology facility in Ashland.
