Ms. Jeffrey Counts Ecology Projects as Highlights
Jodie Elizabeth Jeffrey, longtime board member of the South Shore Foundation, is shown here with her African gray parrot, Kenya. She said the foundation’s support of Audubon Adventures for area elementary students and its contribution of $25,000 to building the Fred Berry Conservation and Education Center outside of Yellville were highlights of her service on the board as chairman.

Jodie Elizabeth Jeffrey, a charter member of the South Shore Foundation Board of Directors, completed her service on the board at the end of her term. Ms. Jeffrey is the co-owner of Brooks-Jeffrey Marketing and Computer Store in Mountain Home and previously worked as sales and marketing manager of NATCO’s deregulated business side from 1981-85.

As the retiring board chairman, Ms. Jeffrey saluted NATCO for establishing South Shore Foundation and funding its work for the past decade. "NATCO has been a responsible voice in advancing education, preserving the environment, and promoting economic development for the South Shore area," she stated.

Ms. Jeffrey served on the board since mid-1997. She was chairman throughout her 10 years on the board. Since its founding, the board made grants to nonprofit organizations and agencies for more than $650,000.

The former chairman said, “All three major goals of the South Shore Foundation were of equal interest to me.” Highlights of her service on the South Shore Foundation Board, she said, were ongoing support for the Audubon Adventures project and granting $25,000 toward construction of the Fred Berry Conservation and Education Center at Yellville.

The Audubon Adventures project is sponsored by the North Central Arkansas chapter of the Audubon Society to provide elementary students and their teachers ecology kits for classrooms in Flippin, Yellville-Summit, Bruno-Pyatt, Bergman, Lead Hill and Omaha schools. "I agree with them that if children learn about the environment early in their life, they are more likely to care about its importance later."

Additional community activities of Ms. Jeffrey include serving as president of Mountain Home Rotary Club, vice president of Baxter Regional Hospital Foundation Board, and a member of Mountain Home Good Samaritan Village Advisory Board.

NATCO is an independent, family-owned telecommunications company, since 1951.
It serves portions of Marion and Boone Counties with six telephone exchanges: Flippin, Bull
Shoals, Diamond City, Lead Hill, Omaha, and Pyatt. For information or to make a grant
