PARKINSON REAPPOINTS BOLTON TO KANSAS WILDLIFE AND PARKS COMMISSION

Garden City native to serve second term

Governor Mark Parkinson has reappointed Debra Bolton, Garden City, to the Kansas Wildlife and Parks Commission. Bolton was originally appointed to the commission by former Governor Kathleen Sebelius in April of 2007.

Bolton, an extension specialist with K-State Research and Extension, has been a southwest Kansas resident for 25 years. She holds a bachelor’s degree in English from St. Mary of the Plains College, a master’s degree in English from Fort Hays State University, and is a doctoral candidate in human ecology at Kansas State University.

She is a former director of the Finney County Community Learning Center and serves as a volunteer tour guide at the Sandsage Bison Range, south of Garden City.

The seven-member Kansas Wildlife and Parks Commission advises the secretary of the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) on planning and policy issues. All positions on the commission are appointed by the governor. Regulations approved by the commission are adopted and administered by the KDWP secretary.
