LANSING — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Tuesday appointed state Rep. Kyra Harris Bolden to the Michigan Supreme Court, making her the first Black woman to serve on the court.

Bolden, 34, D-Southfield, will succeed Justice Bridget McCormack, a Democratic nominee who plans to retire from the bench by Dec. 31. Bolden’s appointment will maintain Democrats’ 4-3 majority on the bench.

“She will bring a unique perspective to our high court as a Black woman — and as a new, working mom — that has too long been left out,” Whitmer said.

“Kyra is committed to fighting for justice for generations, and I know she will serve Michigan admirably, building a brighter future for her newborn daughter and all our kids."

Prior to coming to GVSU, Dr. Mili served as the Dean of the College of Computing and Informatics at UNC Charlotte where she led it through a five-year period of growth in enrollment, in retention, in research, and in broadening participation. Her distinctive impact at UNC Charlotte has centered around instilling a culture of equity and embracing the responsibility for the social and ethical impact of technological education, research, and products. Before her deanship at UNC Charlotte, she was at Purdue University where she led one of Purdue Big Moves that transformed curriculum pedagogy at the College of Technology and led to its transformation into the Purdue Polytechnic.

Dr. Mili has deep Michigan roots. She started her academic career at Oakland University in the School of Computer Science and Engineering. Her research was in the areas of formal methods, intelligent systems, and nature inspired adaptive systems and was funded by federal agencies as well as industrial partners.
