Parnell makes new appointment to Board of Game

JUNEAU — Gov. Sean Parnell has appointed a Palmer man to the Alaska Board of Game.

Peter M. Probasco will serve in the seat held for nearly a year by Lynn Keogh Jr. before Keogh’s appointment was rejected by the Legislature last month.

Probasco’s appointment also is subject to confirmation.

Probasco has an agricultural background, according to biographical information released by Parnell’s office. His professional career includes work as a professor and associate director at the University of Alaska’s Cooperative Extension Service, as well as with the state’s Division of Agriculture. He also worked as an insurance agent.

Parnell’s office says Probasco holds a doctorate in education from the University of Minnesota where he also earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in agriculture education.
