LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Dr. Misty Jackson, of Leslie, to the state Historic Preservation Review Board.

The nine-member board reviews and approves national register nominations prior to their submission to the Keeper of the National Register and provides general advice, guidance, and professional recommendations to the state Historic Preservation Office on matters related to historic preservation.

“Misty is an accomplished professional and I thank her for serving on this board,” Snyder said.

Jackson is owner and principal investigator for Arbre Croche Cultural Resources and also works as a subcontracted consultant for underwater test excavations in parts of Lake Michigan. Previously, she was project director for Sauk Trail/US 12 historical, archival, oral history and archaeological survey for the Michigan Department of Transportation. She also served as staff archaeologist for Andrews Cultural Resources and was involved in cultural resource management. Jackson holds certificates from the Register of Professional Archaeologists and the Office of the State Archaeologist of Michigan. She holds a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from Indiana State University, and both a master’s degree and Ph.D. in anthropology from Michigan State University. She will represent historic archaeology and replaces Fiona Greenland, who resigned.

Jackson will serve the remainder of a four-year term expiring Dec. 31, 2016, and her appointment is not subject to the advice and consent of the state Senate.
