(EMC) directors during their monthly board meeting in February. Mitchell EMC Directors Billy Senkbeil of Sylvester, Georgia, and Ralph Davis of Camilla, Georgia, have promoted peanuts for many years at state and national EMC meetings. During the presentation, GPC chairman Armond Morris read excerpts of a letter sent to GPC from Dennis Chastain, president, and CEO of Georgia EMC. “These two gentlemen, who have dedicated their lives to agriculture, make annual deliveries of peanuts to the Georgia EMC Directors’ Association Annual Meeting and to the National Rural Electric Coop. Association’s annual meeting. I can say without hesitation that these two gentlemen have made it their lives’ mission to promote Georgia peanuts. By all accounts and estimates, they have shared more than 40,000 of the iconic red foil bags of delicious Georgia peanuts with others.” Photo Caption: Armond Morris, Georgia Peanut Commission chairman, presents a certificate to Mitchell Electric Membership Corp. directors Billy Senkbeil of Sylvester and Ralph Davis of Camilla for their efforts in promoting Georgia peanuts across the U.S. at EMC meetings.
