Board members elected
The Wyoming Stock Growers Land Trust (WSGLT) has recently announced Steve Sharkey of Jackson, Bobbie Frank of Meriden and Reg Phillips of Dubois were elected to serve on the board.
Sharkey grew up in Colorado Springs, Colo, and moved to Jackson in 1999 where he owns an investment firm. He also serves as a director of the Knobloch Family Foundation, which makes grants to land protection and other conservation projects.
Sharkey says, “As a funder of conservation easements through the Knobloch Family Foundation, I’m excited to join the board of this terrific land trust and deepen our relationship.”
Frank is a Laramie County resident with a ranch in Meriden. Horse Creek Angus, LLC and Horse Creek Market Garden are Frank’s family operations, focused on raising quality Angus cattle and providing locally grown, seasonal produce. Frank recently retired from serving as the executive director of the Wyoming Association of Conservation Districts (WACD) and the Wyoming Natural Resource Foundation.
“I am excited to join the WSGLT Board and contribute, where I can, to the organization’s successful work of conserving Wyoming’s working lands,” says Frank.
Phillips is the ranch manager for Diamond D Cattle Co. and the property manager for Wind River Land and Building Company. He is currently the chairman of the Dubois-Crowheart Conservation District and an Area Four board member for the WACD.
“Listening, courtesy and a large dose of common sense go a long way towards getting the job done,” says Phillips on working to conserve Wyoming’s agricultural lands.
