Yadkinville Mayor Eddie Norman and Commissioners Chris Matthews and Scott Winebarger were sworn in to their respective roles at the December meeting of the town board. The three were reelected to their respective seats in November.
Longtime board member Betty Driver tendered her resignation at the December meeting, citing health concerns.
“It is a tremendous loss for us,” Norman said. “She is a steward of this town.”
The board has not yet determined who will replace Driver.
A celebration in Driver’s honor is scheduled for next month.
“We want to make sure Betty gets all the glory she deserves cause she’s just a wonderful lady,” Norman said.
Chief Tim Parks of the Yadkinville Police Department presented Driver a plaque in appreciation for her many years of support for the Yadkinville Cops Care Program. The plaque was awarded to Driver at the annual Christmas Cops Care luncheon last week.
