WSL Board welcomes new member
Jeanette Smith of Sundance is Gov. Jim Geringer’s new appointee to the Wyoming State Library Board.
She replaces Dorothy Baker.
Smith represents District 6, which covers Crook, Niobrara and Weston counties. Her term expires March 1, 2005.
Smith and her husband, Nels, operate the Sundance Ranch. Her library experience includes two and half terms on the Crook County Library Board and 10 years as president of the Sundance Friends of the Library. She also coordinates the county blood drive and is a member of Crook County and Wyoming CattleWomen, PEO, Beta Sigma Phi, Farm Bureau, 4-H, the Methodist Church and plays an active role in the Republican Party.
The Smiths have two grown sons, also in the ranching industry, and seven grandchildren.
Smith said she is looking forward to her term on the board as a learning experience and a way to promote libraries in the state.
“I have spent a lot of time in the library and seen the changes in the last seven to 10 years. I have also tried to encourage the community use of the library,” she said.
Jack Mueller, current chair of the state board, was re-appointed for a third term. Mueller represents District 1 serving Laramie, Platte and Goshen counties. His initial appointment by Geringer came in 1996. He is retired from the Department of Education and active in several organizations.
