District 3 County Commissioner Jim Rogers, right, presents Max Smith with a
retirement plaque after 18 years of service for Sequoyah County.
The Board of Sequoyah County Commissioners approved naming Nikki Lloyd as requisitioning agent for the county at their weekly meeting Monday.
Lloyd will be the requisition agent for the county’s three districts, as well as the commissioners’ office, and she will be the receiving agent for the Sequoyah County Office of Emergency Management.
After the meeting, Jim Rogers, commissioner for the county’s 3rd District, honored Max Smith, a county truck driver and general laborer who has retired after 18 years with the county. His last day was July 31. Smith’s family, friends and co-workers were on hand for the surprise farewell party.
Smith, affectionately known as “the Professor,” said that despite his retirement, he plans to continue his work as chairman of the Sallisaw Farmers Market and he plans to spend time with his grandchildren. He is also on the fair board and provides the sheep for mutton-bustin’ contests.
Rogers, who presented Smith with a plaque honoring his service, said Smith has been a hard worker and a one-of-a-kind employee. “I’ve sure enjoyed him for the last 18 years,” he said.
