I look forward to working with him as we explore new frontiers to help promote Wilcox County.” Lyon joins the Wilcox Area Chamber Executive Board, consisting of Kristin Law (Vice President), Anne Farrell Wright (Immediate Past-President), Meagan English (Treasurer), and Bonnie Martens (Secretary). Adam Morgan, previous chamber president, is now Managed Care Assistant Director of CHOICES with the State of Tennessee Bureau of TennCare.
Adam now resides in Nashville, Tennessee. Morgan reflects back on his time with the Wilcox Area Chamber of Commerce by stating, “Although short-lived, it was an honor to serve as the President for the WACC Board of Directors. I have loved serving on the board these past few years and working with the passionate board members and community leaders to move this county forward. This county has so much potential that continues to shine through with every business and resident that takes pride in what we have. I have full faith in Laura, new Board President, Ike Lyon and the rest of the board to keep up the great work of the Chamber! There is no doubt that the best is yet to come!”
