Hall to remain PRVWSD Board President
Current slate of officers reelected unanimously Thursday

Jennifer Hall of Brandon was reelected Thursday to a second one-year term as president of the Pearl River Valley Water Supply District Board of Directors.

Hall, who was appointed to the board by Gov. Phil Bryant in 2016 as a representative of Rankin County, is the ninth President - and the first female to hold the position - since PRVWSD was formed in 1958.

At the September PRVWSD board meeting, all current officers were unanimously re-elected, including Vice President Billy Cook of Carthage and Secretary Phillip Crosby of Leake County.

Two PRVWSD staff members will continue to assist the Board; Deputy Director Susan McMullan will continue to act as Treasurer and Executive Assistant Cindy Ford will remain as Assistant Board Secretary.

PRVWSD is a state agency that oversees operation of Barnett Reservoir. Its Board of Directors has 14 members that include two each from the five counties that border its property (Hinds, Leake, Madison, Rankin and Scott), and four representatives of state agencies (Health, Forestry, Environmental Quality, and Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks). Eight of the 14 must be leaseholders of PRVWSD, including both members from Madison and Rankin counties and all four agency appointments.
