Governor Appoints College Archivist to State Historical Records Advisory Board
Governor Rick Snyder recently announced the appointment of Albion College archivist Nicole Garrett to the Michigan State Historical Records Advisory Board (MiSHRAB).
Garrett recalled her surprise upon receiving a phone call in late 2012 from the governor's office. "I asked if someone had recommended me, and they said no; they had conducted a search and thought my experience and knowledge matched the appointment," said Garrett. "I'm pretty excited."
