The former Governor and Congressman was appointed by Governor Markell Thursday, and succeeds Dr. Calvin Wilson, whose six-year term expired last August.
During 40 years in public office, Castle served a number of elected positions--most notably as a two-term governor and nine-term congressman.
His political career came to an end in 2010 after he lost to Christine O'Donnell in a Republican primary for the 2010 special election for U.S. Senate.
Castle will serve a six-year term on the board.
