Boyd Resigns From TWHBEA




December 10, 2014
 
Dear Steve, Executive Committee, Members and Staff:

 
Recently, and quite unexpectedly, I was presented with a tremendous career opportunity; one that has the potential to benefit my family for years to come. With the best interest of my family in mind, and for that reason alone, I am announcing my resignation as executive director of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' Association, effective December 31, 2014.

 
I remain humbled that the 2013 Executive Committee entrusted me with this position and it has been the pleasure of my life serving our members and representing the greatest horse on earth - the Tennessee Walking Horse.

 
I wish to thank all the members of the 2014 Executive Committee for their efforts on behalf of the Association, and particularly you and Walt for your fine leadership. It was a pleasure working with each of you and I appreciate the confidence you showed in me and the support you gave me. 

 
I regret that I will miss the opportunity to serve the newly elected 2015 Executive Committee, but I am confident that under your continued leadership, along with Charles as Senior Vice President, TWHBEA will continue on the road to financial recovery. I have the utmost personal respect for each of you gentlemen and the highest regard for your business acumen. TWHBEA is in good hands. 

 
And to our hard-working and loyal staff, I extend my deepest and sincerest appreciation for your efforts on behalf of TWHBEA, but most of all for your friendship and the kindness you've shown me. I am forever grateful to each of you.
God Bless each of you and long-live the Tennessee Walking Horse and TWHBEA.
 

 
Tracy Boyd
