Craig Roberts of Princeton has been selected to fill the Kenergy board seat left vacant by the death of long-time Director Glenn Cox.
Cox served District 1 in Caldwell, Lyon and portions of Crittenden and Hopkins counties for 22 years before his passing on April 7, 2017.
Roberts will take his seat on the board at the September 12 board meeting.
Roberts is a native of Caldwell County. He is the owner/operator of Roberts Farms in northern Caldwell County and an owner/operator of P&R Logging & Roberts Logging. He is a member of the Kentucky Soybean Board, Kentucky Farm Bureau Board, serves on the Caldwell County 4-H Council, Trade Water River Board, and Caldwell County Young Farmers.
He is a member of Chapel Hill Baptist Church where he is a deacon, Sunday school director and member of the building committee. He and his wife Karen, who is a speech language pathologist for Hopkins County Schools, have two grown children and three grandchildren.
In accordance with Kenergy’s policy, the board chairman appointed a search committee to recommend a new director after Cox’s death. The committee included three directors and three member-owners from District 1.
Four candidates were interviewed by Kenergy’s board of directors before a decision was made.
Roberts’ term will expire in 2019.
