Sulphur River Basin Authority selects lone finalist for executive director

March 18th, 2019 by Jennifer Middleton in Texarkana News

The Sulphur River Basin Authority's Board of Directors has selected a lone finalist for the position of executive director. They will introduce Meg Shelton of Hughes Springs, Texas, to the full board during their regular meeting Tuesday in Mount Pleasant.

"I'm very excited for the opportunity to work with the Sulphur River Basin Authority," Shelton said. "After meeting with board members, I can already tell we're going to make a great team. We're very passionate about the conservation and development of the water within the Sulphur River Basin. As executive director, I'd initially like to focus on building relationships within the territory and exacting the issues that are important and impactful for the Sulphur River Basin stakeholders. I have high hopes that we will continue working together effectively and efficiently with state and federal agencies in order to carry out the visions of the SRBA and meet the impending needs of the state's water supply."

Shelton is a 2014 graduate of the University of Mississippi School of Law and a 2010 graduate of the University of Alabama, where she earned a bachelor of arts degree in English and philosophy. She most recently worked for Benefit Concepts in Columbus, Miss., as general counsel for the chief compliance officer.

SRBA Chairman Chris Spencer said they were looking forward to working with Shelton.

"SRBA is very excited about our lone finalist for the position of executive director," he said. "We are excited to present her to the board for a vote and present her to the people at the meeting."

The meeting will be held at 1 p.m. at the Mount Pleasant Civic Center, 1800 North Jefferson, Mount Pleasant, Texas.
