Skiles started with MFA as an assistant manager in 1981 and became the manager in 1995.
One of the best things about MFA, according to Skiles, is its relationship with the community. We are here as a cooperative to meet the needs and provide needed services for the community and surrounding area. It’s been a good run for both, she said.
Skiles said MFA has come a long way since it was first established in 1932, 82 years ago, with only $1,200 in capital. An 80-year celebration was held, including an open house and special awards presented at its annual meeting on October 25. Brian Griffith, MFA Inc., senior vice president, presented Dennis Purcell, president of the board, with a plaque commemorating 80 years of successfully serving farmers, ranchers and the community. Current board members are Purcell, Andrew Curley, Hershel Moser, Steve Wulff, Lance Hasten and Roger Schafer.
