RENO, Nev. — The first female sportsman ever appointed to the Nevada Board of Wildlife Commission has now become its first chairwoman.
Board members elected Tiffany Tripp East to the post at its August monthly meeting.
East has been a member of the panel since 2017.
Gov. Steve Sisolak earlier reappointed her to another term on the commission. He also appointed two new members — former Douglas County Sheriff Ron Pierini and Shane Rogers, a longtime member of the Las Vegas-based Fraternity of the Desert Bighorn and the Wild Sheep Foundation.
Pierini is a longtime wildlife advocate who has done extensive volunteer work with Operation Game Thief and the Carson Valley Chukar Foundation.
Earlier this year, the commission awarded him the Wayne E. Kirch Conservation Award.
