Two new directors elected to F&M boards

Two new directors were elected to the Boards of Directors of F&M Financial Corporation, F&M Bank and F&M Investment Services, Inc. during the Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on May 26.

Carol McCraw Herndon and Dr. Vergel Lattimore III were elected to three-year terms, beginning in 2016.

Herndon is a native of High Point, and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a bachelor of science degree in business administration. She is a 22-year veteran of Food Lion/Delhaize America with her career culminating in the roles of chief financial officer and chief administrative officer.

Currently, Herndon serves as executive director of Food for Thought Rowan County and is very active in the community. Herndon and her husband, Mike, have two children, Carson and Bailey. The Herndons reside in Salisbury.

Dr. Lattimore, a native of Charlotte, received a bachelor of arts in social welfare from Livingstone College, a masters of divinity degree from Duke University Divinity School and a doctor of philosophy in pastoral psychology and counseling from Northwestern University. Prior to arriving in Salisbury at Hood Theological Seminary as president and professor of pastoral psychology and counseling, he held various positions in Ohio, New York and at Duke University.

He also holds the distinction of being the first African-American chaplain to attain the rank of brigadier general in the U.S. Air Force. Lattimore and his wife, Joy, are the parents of three children, Alston, Adam and Alia.

“We are very fortunate to add two individuals with such a high level of integrity and experience to our boards. Carol has Fortune 500 executive experience and is a committed community leader in addition to her tremendous knowledge in the area of finance. Vergel brings to our boards a level of character, an understanding of people and a diverse management background that is essential to community banking.

“They are both excellent additions to the F&M Boards and the extended F&M family,” said Steve Fisher, CEO of F&M Financial Corporation.
