Gov. Haley Barbour has appointed two members to the Mississippi State Board of Architecture, David J. Hardy of Gulfport, and Michael Boerner of Jackson. Hardy, AIA, was appointed for a term to expire May 31, 2016. A Mississippi Gulf Coast native, Hardy is the COO for Eley Guild Hardy Architects.
Hardy received his architecture degree from Mississippi State University in 1990 and began his career with Guild and Grace Architects in 1992, ultimately forming Guild Hardy Architects in 1995. In 2007, the firm merged with Eley Associates of Jackson to create Eley Guild Hardy Architects.

Originally from Brookhaven, Boerner is a principal at Wier+Boerner in Jackson. He holds a bachelor of architecture from Mississippi State University as well as a bachelor of science in business administration and a minor in art from Millsaps College.
He is believed to be the youngest member in the board’s history.
