A son of Pat Berggren has been appointed to serve the remainder of his father’s term on the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

On Monday the commission announced that Gov. Pete Ricketts named Pat Berggren, of Broken Bow, to replace Lynn Berggren, who died Feb. 16. The District 6 seat covers much of north-central Nebraska.

The senior Berggren was entering his eighth year on the commission. The term expires Jan. 15 next year. The commission said in a news release posted Monday that the appointment was effective March 11.
