Southwest Georgia Farm Credit recently presented a $5,000 check to Steve Dickman, founder and president of the Stewards of Lake Seminole, a group dedicated to preserving the health of the lake.

Southwest Georgia Farm Credit then applied for, and received, a matching grant from CoBank, through its 2023 Sharing Success Program. CoBank is part of the Farm Credit System – its program supports its customers by supporting Associations’ contributions to non-profits that make a difference in the communities they serve.  This matching grant of an additional $5,000 was presented to Mr. Dickman by Southwest Georgia Farm Credit employee and Stewards of Lake Seminole member  Mandy Johnson.

Southwest Georgia Farm Credit supports the mission of the Stewards of Lake Seminole and its commitment to work collaboratively for the benefit of property owners on Lake Seminole, bordering communities, recreationalists and local businesses.

The mission of the Stewards of Lake Seminole is to secure funding as a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, to manage invasive species on Lake Seminole, in a collaborative but timely manner with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), for the benefit of the Lake Seminole stakeholders.
