On September 5th, the PBA Board of Directors unanimously elected Terry Preston as the new PBA President. Terry, who currently serves on the PBA Board, was one of the first female graduates of the US Merchant Marine Academy in 1978, and bought her house on Pensacola Beach in 1979. After a career that included sailing on coastwise tankers, managing the Environmental department of the Naval Aviation Depot and Directing the Environmental, Safety and Quality departments for Atlantic Marine’s Alabama Shipyards, she returned to her island home in 2007 and runs her own EHS consulting business. Jim Cox, who served as President for the past 5 years, has moved to Gulf Breeze. He is still very interested in Beach issues and plans to stay involved with PBA.
