WYANDOTTE – The city’s museums director is about to add another item to her resume.

Wyandotte Director of Museums and Cultural Affairs Jody Egan was named to the Michigan Humanities Council by Gov. Rick Snyder last month.

“I am honored to serve the state of Michigan in this capacity and I am sincerely looking forward to assisting the council in helping communities, groups and individuals achieve their cultural and artistic pursuits,” Egen said, “thereby directly contributing to the quality of life for Michigan’s citizens, promotion of our heritage, and supporting a sustained cycle of cultural and economic development.”

Egan has been the museum’s director since 2005. She is one of four appointments Snyder made to the council, a private non-profiit founded in 1974 which works to promote cultural programming for communities across the state.

She has a master’s degree in historic preservation from Eastern Michigan University.

Her term expires December 2015.
