Greg Gill, a peanut farmer from Walnut Ridge, Arkansas, was elected chairman of the 12-member National Peanut Board last week during the Board’s quarterly meeting in Washington, D.C. Gill, who served 2017 as vice-chairman, begins his one-year term Jan. 1.

“I’m honored to serve as chairman of the National Peanut Board this year,” said Gill. “We have a strong program of work to implement in 2018—such as supporting the launch of the first-ever peanut milk in retail stores nationwide and educating health professionals and parents about the NIH guidelines for introducing peanut products to infants. It should be a very busy and productive year.”

Also, National Peanut Board elected Dan Ward of Clarkton, North Carolina, as vice-chairman; Peter Froese Jr. of Seminole, Texas, as treasurer; and Andy Bell of Climax, Georgia, as secretary. These officers will serve one-year terms beginning Jan. 1.
