RIDGELAND – Stockholders of Southern AgCredit recently elected Gene Boykin, of Rolling Fork, and re-elected Reggie Allen, of Brookhaven, and T.C. Hall, of Gloster, Louisiana, to the lending cooperative’s board of directors. All three directors will serve three-year terms.
“Because of our cooperative structure, our board of directors plays a very important role in guiding the policy of the association,” said Joe Hayman, Southern AgCredit chief executive officer. “These elections ensure that the policy direction will continue to be in qualified hands that represent the customer-owners we serve.”
The Southern AgCredit 10-member board also includes chairman Kevin Rhodes of Pelahatchie, vice chairman Scott Bell, of Lena, Van Bennett, of Spearsville, Louisiana, Allen Eubanks, of Lucedale, Larry Killebrew, of Lexington, Emery Skelton, of Winterville, and Linda Staniszewski, of Hattiesburg.
