S.A.L.E. elects Hutchison
SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Livestock Exposition Inc. (S.A.L.E.), “a volunteer organization that emphasizes agriculture and education to develop the youth of Texas,” is proud to announce the election of Joe E. Hutchison as the new president. According to a May 22 S.A.L.E. press release, Fred “Rusty” Collier was elected as a vice president and new member of the executive committee.
Hutchison became involved in the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo in the early 1990s as a riding member of the Jack Seller Bexar County Palomino Patrol with his wife Kay and daughter Holly. He became a life member of S.A.L.E. in 1995 and a director in 2002. Hutchison served as vice president in 2008 and in 2009 became vice president/secretary.
Hutchison said he “is honored to have the opportunity to serve as President of the San Antonio Livestock Exposition, Inc. and will continue his efforts to support its mission to ‘emphasize agriculture and education to develop the youth of Texas.’”
Collier, a S.A.L.E. Life Member since 1981, joined the S.A.L.E. Livestock Committee in 1985 and transferred to the Operations Committee in 1986 upon establishment. He became a S.A.L.E. director in 1988. He has served as Operations Committee vice chairman (1993-99); Operations Committee chairman (2000-09); and S.A.L.E. assistant vice president from 2010-12.
“I am most proud of the fact that S.A.L.E. Volunteers have made it possible for many young Texans to continue their education through our scholarship programs,” Collier said. “I am grateful to be a part of the S.A.L.E. family and I am proud to be a S.A.L.E. Volunteer.”
Vice President Cody Davenport replaces Hutchison as the Executive Committee vice president/secretary. Fully Clingman, Joe Soules, and Fred Petmecky were all three re-elected as vice presidents to serve three-year terms.
