Jon David King has been elected to the governing board of St. Bernards CrossRidge in Wynne.
King, who grew up in Wynne and works with Hays Foods, will serve along with eight other board members who are responsible for establishing broad policies and objectives, oversight of fiscal performance and financial resources, accounting for ethics, compliance and performance of the organization as well as approving annual budgets and strategic planning.
King has worked for Hays Food Town in Northeast Arkansas since 2001 and is involved in all aspects of the business – everything from store supervision and maintenance to budgeting and forecasting and from supply management and workforce relations to merchandise planning and crisis management.
Hays is a family-owned local supermarket chain with 12 stores in Northeast Arkansas and Southeast Missouri.
Prior to working with Hays, King was with Kroger in Madison, Miss., where he was a co-manager of the highest volume Kroger store in that chain’s Delta Division.
“We are especially pleased to have Jon David on our board,” says St. Bernards CrossRidge Administrator Gary Sparks. “His strong management and financial skills and his commitment to Wynne and Cross County make him an excellent addition to our governing body.”
The holder of a Bachelor of Science in Management degree from Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta serves on the Wynne Economic Development Commission, the Technology Center of the Delta in Wynne and the Arkansas Retail Grocers and Merchants Association in Little Rock.
He attended Wynne High School and was graduated from Arkansas School for Mathematics and Sciences in Hot Springs.
King and his wife, the former Ashley Boeckmann of Wynne, have three children – Caroline, Jack and Sarah. His parents are Mike and Kay King of Wynne.
He is a member of St. Peter’s Catholic Church and teaches a senior high Sunday school class. King has been a member of the Rotary Club of Jonesboro, where he was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow.
