Jan Frederick was approved as a member of the Tourist Commission at the Parish Council meeting Monday night, July 18. Parish President Rick Nowlin also appointed Mardy Summerlin as his designee. A member of all the Parish boards and commissions, Nowlin said the Tourist Commission is one of the really important ones. He needed someone to sit in for him and keep him up-to-date. He was looking for someone invested in the community. While she is a non-voting member, Nowlin thought Summerlin had energy and fresh ideas to bring to the table. New to the board as of March is Joe Darby, who previously served as Nowlin’s designee.
