Sanders P. Cox of Enfield has been appointed by the Halifax EMC Board of Directors to fulfill the unexpired term of Beverly H. Walker, who retired from the Halifax EMC board
in March. He will serve as a director for District 8 At-Large.

Cox is a Halifax County native and a former Halifax EMC employee. He retired from the cooperative after 33 years of service. He is continuing a family legacy of service to the cooperative that began with his grandfather, William E. Powell, who was an original incorporator of Halifax EMC and board of director, and his father, A.C. Cox, Jr., who served as a member of the board of directors from 1951 until 1988.

He holds Bachelor of Science degrees from both North Carolina State University and North Carolina Wesleyan College. Prior to working for Halifax EMC, he farmed and has been a member of the cooperative for 50 years.

Cox enjoys spending time with his children and grandchildren on the family farm. He also maintains the church grounds at Antioch Baptist Church. He is looking forward to continuing to serve the members of Halifax EMC and becoming more involved in community organizations.
