Two TTU representatives appointed by governor to state boards

Two Tennessee Tech University representatives have recently been appointed to state boards by Gov. Phil Bredesen.

Glen Johnson, dean of engineering, has been appointed to the state’s Boiler Rules Board, and W. Calvin Dickinson, an emeritus faculty member of history, has been appointed to the Tennessee Historical Commission.

The Boiler Rules Board works with the Boiler Inspection Division of the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development. It is responsible for formulating definitions, rules and regulations for the safe and proper construction, installation, repair, use and operation of boilers in Tennessee.

The Tennessee Historical Commission is a division of the state Department of Environment and Conservation. It encourages the study of Tennessee history for the benefit of future generations and works to preserve historic sites, assist in worthy publication projects and review projects that could impact historic properties.
