(Neb)-Forest Service Names New NNF&G Supervisor
CHADRON - The U-S Forest Service has named a new Supervisor for the Chadron-based Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands. Jack Isaacs begins May 14 as the successor to Kevin Atchley, who retired in late December.
Issacs is no stranger to the area. He grew up in Faith, South Dakota, and began his Forest Service career in the Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands, first as a Range Aide in Wall on the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands, then on the Fort Pierre National Grasslands, and then back to Wall.
A 28-year veteran of the agency, Isaacs says he looks forward to coming back to the Nebraska National Forest and Grasslands to "re-discover all the wonderful places and people!"
Issacs has worked in various staff areas including range, wildlife, lands, special uses, conservation education and recreation for national forests and national grasslands in the Dakotas, Montana, and Idaho. He's been Deputy Forest Supervisor of the Humboldt - Toiyabe National Forest in Nevada the past 2 years.
He's also taken a variety of short-term assignments to broaden his skills. The most recent of those was as the Assistant Director of Range Programs at Forest Service national headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Isaacs was born and raised on a cattle and sheep ranch near Faith, South Dakota, with his parents, grandparents and an older sister. He attended a small two-room country school before graduating from Faith High School and South Dakota State University.
