President Obama announced more key administration posts Friday, and Cache Valley resident Sachin Pavithran was among them. The Utah State University graduate has been appointed to the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board. The board helps develop policy relating to disability.

Pavithran is also a member of the Committee of the National Federation of the Blind and works at the Center for Persons with Disabilities on the USU campus. UPR's Storee Powell talked with Pavithran to learn his feelings about the appointment and how the process of being appointed works.
