COG Big Sandy returns two trustees to board
By John Warren
BIG SANDY, Texas--At its monthly meeting in July the Church of God Big Sandy's board of trustees learned the results of the congregation's annual election. The two-part process began in April when members of the congregation formed a committee to schedule the nomination procedure and final election.
The trustees appointed Bernie Monsalvo chairman of the committee. Dave Havir, as church pastor, is an ad-hoc member of the committee. Other committee members were Melodee Overton of Hawkins, Wayne Weese of Big Sandy and Sharon Wilson of Tyler.
Two positions open
The annual election was for two positions on the board held by Wynn Skelton of White Oak and Don Mischnick of Hawkins. The two incumbents were joined on the final ballot by Ron Feaker and Ron Avey, both of Big Sandy.
Mr. Monsalvo reported to the board that Mr. Mischnick and Mr. Skelton were reelected to new three-year terms.
"The whole election process went very smoothly," commented Mr. Havir. "It is nice that the congregation has many qualified people who are willing to serve on the board."
In the first board meeting after the election, Karl Wilson of Tyler, board president, opened the floor for reorganization of officers.
The trustees nominated Mr. Skelton for president, Mr. Wilson as vice president, Mr. Mischnick as treasurer and Don Walls of Gladewater as secretary.
All were elected with a 6-0 vote with one (the person being voted on) abstaining.
Each officer serves a one-year term.
Tat Tomes and John Warren, both of Big Sandy, are also members of the seven-person board.
