Gov. Haley appoints new DNR Board Chairman
Gov. Nikki Haley recently appointed acting chairman Johnny Evans of Orangeburg as the new chairman of the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Board.
Evans represents the Sixth Congressional District. He is currently President/CEO of C.F. Evans Construction, a family-owned construction management firm specializing in multi-family construction throughout the Southeast. He also is an active member in the Boone and Crockett Club, which was founded by Teddy Roosevelt and is the oldest conservation organization in America. Evans grew up in Cameron and is a graduate of Clemson University, where he earned a Bachelor of Building Science degree. Mr. Evans and his wife Kristen reside in the Lone Star community in Calhoun County.
"Johnny Evans has a steadfast commitment to the state's natural resources and our agency's mission," said agency director Alvin Taylor. "He has consistently demonstrated his leadership qualities in a variety of capacities since his appointment as a board member in 2004."
The Natural Resources Board meets monthly and sets policy for the S.C. Department of Natural Resources. The DNR is composed of five divisions: Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries, Land, Water and Conservation, Law Enforcement, Outreach and Support Services and the Marine Resources Division, based in Charleston.
