Governor Asa Hutchinson has appointed Lindsey Wingo to the Arkansas Economic Development Commission Council.
Wingo replaces Jim Andrews on the Council. She is project manager at studioDRIFT, an Arkansas nonprofit focused on connecting and animating rural communities.
A native of Rector, she is former executive director of the Downtown Jonesboro Alliance. Wingo was recently named one of the most influential Women in Business in Northeast Arkansas by Talk Business & Politics.
“Northeast Arkansas is fortunate to have such an exceptional and talented young professional with a passion for serving our part of the state,” former state legislator and Clay County native Rep. Joe Jett said. “I believe the whole state will benefit from Lindsey’s leadership, and she will be a voice for rural Arkansas on the Council.”
Wingo recently served on the Jonesboro Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and currently serves on the Rector Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, St. Bernards Advocate Board of Directors, CASA Board of Directors and volunteers with other various organizations.
A “Leadership Jonesboro” graduate and currently appointed by Gov. Hutchinson to participate in the Delta Leadership Executive Academy, Wingo is an Arkansas State University alumnus with a BS in Strategic Communication, Public Relations, and a minor in Entrepreneurship.
