National Sorghum Producers Board of Directors Re-Elects Meeker to Lead Association
LUBBOCK, TX (October 03, 2023)—The National Sorghum Producers board of directors re-elected officers and a new director at its annual board and budget meeting in August. Craig Meeker of Wellington, Kansas, will serve a second term as chair, Amy France of Scotty City, Kansas, will continue to serve as vice chair and Kody Carson of Olton, Texas, retains his position as past chair.
“This executive leadership team has represented sorghum farmers exceptionally well this past year, and we look forward to following their leadership through 2024,” NSP CEO Tim Lust said. “As we near more concentrated farm bill debate and other issues pressing sorghum farmers and the industry, Craig, Amy and Kody serve as a shining example of dedication and expertise, guiding us toward a more prosperous and sustainable future for sorghum in the United States. Our industry is fortunate to have them at the helm of this industry during this important time.”
The NSP board of directors elected one new member—Scott Frazier from Chapman Ranch, Texas. Frazier produces sorghum, cotton, corn and cattle, cultivating a deep connection to agriculture. He served on the Texas Farm Bureau & Affiliated Companies Board of Directors, where he served as secretary/treasurer. He has contributed to the Nueces County Farm Bureau, leading as president for a number of years. Frazier was also a member of the Texas Agricultural Lifetime Leadership (TALL) Class XIV and represented Texas agriculture at the USMCA hearing in Montreal in 2019. For two decades, Frazier has lobbied in D.C. and Austin, serving as a passionate advocate for the agriculture industry.
Marc Adams with CoBank was also re-elected to the board. Frazier and Adams will serve a three-year term that began Oct. 1. The NSP board also recognized one leader who ended his term as director on Sept. 30—Jay Wilder of Snook, Texas.
