TWHBEA Executive Committee Elects New President
Loyd Hall (Buster) Black, Jr., of Brooks, Ga., has been elected President of the 8,300-member Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA). Black was unanimously elected to the position by the Association’s Executive Committee following Tracy Boyd’s formal resignation as President on July 22, 2013. Boyd’s resignation follows his recent hiring as TWHBEA Executive Director. Boyd cites a desire to devote his full attention to his new position as the reason for his resignation.
Black, an attorney and long-time breed enthusiast, had been serving in the role of Senior Vice President at the time of his election. He has served multiple terms on the TWHBEA Executive Committee, having chaired the Bylaws Committee for successive terms.
Rob Cornelius of Rogersville, Ala., was elected Senior Vice President to fill the vacancy left by Black. Cornelius, who is also the Association’s Vice President for Administrative/Fiscal/Audit, will serve both roles for the remainder of the year.
The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' Association (TWHBEA), headquartered in Lewisburg, Tennessee, is the oldest and most prestigious organization devoted to the promotion of the breed. Founded in 1935, the breed registry was established to record the pedigrees of the Tennessee Walking Horse. Its goal is to maintain the purity of the breed, to promote greater awareness of the Tennessee Walking Horse and its qualities, to encourage expansion of the breed, and to help assure its general welfare.
