MECHANICSBURG AgChoice Farm Credit recently recognized two retiring directors and welcomed two new directors. The Board of Directors also installed a new leadership committee team.

Retiring directors include Paul McPherson, Region 3, south central Pennsylvania, and Mac Reeves, one of two Appointed Outside directors. Combined, the duo had 39 years of experience with the AgChoice Board of Directors.
