Search begins after service authority director announces retirement

Halifax County Service Authority Executive Director Willie Jones will retire effective June 30.

Dexter Gilliam, chairman of the Board of Directors of the Halifax County Service Authority announced Jones’ intentions in a news release Friday afternoon.

In commenting on Jones’ retirement, Gilliam said, “Willie has done a phenomenal job as the initial executive director of the authority.  Through his leadership, the authority has made great strides in providing quality, uniform services to the customers of South Boston, Halifax and Halifax County.  We will miss his leadership but also wish him well in his retirement.” 

Jones said he has many plans for his retirement including traveling, spending more time with family, catching up on many projects at home and on the family farm, plus he cites volunteer activities through his church and in the area in which he plans to participate.

But before June 30, Jones said “There is a lot of work to do” for the next six months.

A search for a new executive director will begin immediately, Gilliam added.
