OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Mary Fallin is appointing the first-ever woman to serve on the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Fallin announced Tuesday she is naming Leigh Gaddis of Ada to replace the late Harland Stonecipher on the eight-member panel. Gaddis’ appointment is pending confirmation from the Oklahoma Senate.

The owner of a financial planning and investment firm, Gaddis helped Fallin host a deer hunt in 2011 and is a regular participant in shooting sports.

Fallin is Oklahoma’s first female governor and previously was the state’s first female lieutenant governor.

Fallin previously has appointed women for the first time to the Oklahoma State Banking Board and Oklahoma State Board of Agriculture.
