Gov. Gray Davis appointed a history professor and a nurse as the newest public members of the State Bar Board of Governors last month.

Janet M. Green, 67, of Riverside, is the director of health services and a professor of business administration, marketing and management at San Bernardino Valley College.

She was appointed by Chief Justice Ronald George to serve as a public member of the California Judicial Council's Jury Instruction Task Force and was appointed by the San Bernardino County chief probation officer to serve on the county's Youth Justice Center Community Action Council.

Green also works at the Corona Norco Drug Rehabilitation Center.

Dr. John N. Snetsinger, 59, of San Luis Obispo, is the director of international education and programs as well as head of the London study program at Cal Poly University in San Luis Obispo. He has been a history professor for 30 years.

Snetsinger also serves on the legislative committee of the California Faculty Association. He has chaired several university, college and department committees and was the recipient of Cal Poly's Distinguished Teacher Award in 1992.

Both new board members' terms expire Sept. 1, 2002.

Their appointment leaves two open seats for public members on the 23-member board. There are six seats for members of the public.

Green replaces Los Angeles businessman John Morris, and Snetsinger fills the position previously held by Jo Ellen Allen, public affairs director for Southern California Edison. Both left the board three years ago.
