Macon County’s Finance Director, Evelyn Southard, is set to retire at the end of the month after 19 years of service.
“I truly appreciate the amazing career that has been afforded me in my home county. It is not every day that happens,” said Southard.
“Evelyn is one of, if not the top financial director in the state,” said Commissioner Ronnie Beale. “Someone else will be taking over her position, but you can’t replace someone like Evelyn Southard. Her knowledge and experience is impeccable and has been crucial to the success of Macon County.”
Before serving her home county, she worked with Western Carolina University and Southwestern Community College for nearly 15 years.
