Okefenoke REMC’s consumer-members have elected Craig Morgan from Nahunta as their District 4-Middle Brantley County representative on the board of directors. He will serve a three-year term—along with re-elected directors R. Wayne Combs, District 1-Baker County, Florida, and Jimmy Woodard, District 5-West Brantley County and Ware County—on the OREMC board.

Winning over incumbent Board Director Tony Ham, Morgan says he respects and applauds Ham’s 24 years of service, but notes the timing finally seemed right for him to run for the OREMC board. It is something he has wanted to pursue for a while and is excited to get involved and serve his community.

 “I grew up hearing stories about the REA as my grandfather, Horace Morgan, worked and retired from Okefenoke REMC,” notes Morgan. “I bring a different generational perspective and am humbled by the support I received. Knowing the people who work at Okefenoke and their commitment to our members and communities, I am equally invested in them and the organization.”

A life-long resident of Brantley County, Morgan currently works as the maintenance and facilities director for the Brantley County School System. Previously he worked locally as a community banker, mortgage lender and insurance agent.
