WASHINGTON (AP) _ Kit Dobelle, a former U.S. chief of protocol, will be appointed to the Commission on Presidential Scholars, President Clinton said Wednesday.
The commission administers a program to recognize outstanding high school graduating seniors. It was launched in 1964 during the Johnson administration.
Dobelle, who served in the Carter administration, is deputy chief of protocol for the city of San Francisco.
In another personnel action, Clinton named four people as trustees of the government institute that promotes preservation of the artistic and cultural traditions of American Indians and native Alaskans.
The four are: Barbara Blum, president of the Adams National bank in Washington; LaDonna Harris, president of Americans for Indian Opportunity; Loren Kieve, a member of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian, and Catherine Baker Stetson, a regent of the Museum of New Mexico.
