SCV Telegraph – Ben Jones Resigns as Chief of Heritage Operations
Ben Jones has served as Chief of Heritage Operations for over a year. During his tenure, he has taken this position to a new level. His professionalism and his ability to deal with the media have broadened our reach as an organization. He has spent countless hours writing press releases, conducting interviews, and being our face to world. While it is disappointing to announce the resignation of Ben Jones as Chief of Heritage Operations due to health reasons, I am encouraged to know that he will continue to serve the SCV as our National Press Secretary. Mr. Jones said, “thank you for giving me the honor and the opportunity to serve our great organization for the past year. It has been a time of great challenges and wonderful fellowship and camaraderie.”
It is my pleasure to announce that Dean Stevens of South Carolina has graciously accepted the position of Chief of Heritage Operations. While I am sure that Mr. Stevens has enormous shoes to fill, I feel he is sufficiently prepared for the job.
Even though we are in turbulent times, this transition will proceed effortlessly.
Please pray for Ben’s health and speedy recovery and pray for wisdom for Dean Stevens.
