Martha Scarborough, executive director of the Mississippi United Methodist Foundation, retired April 25, 2014. She served the foundation for six years as the associate director and then as executive director for the past seven years. Scarborough's excellent leadership built upon the legacy of the previous two directors, Willard Leggett and Jerry Mitchell. Many will recall that Scarborough also served as the treasurer of the former North Mississippi Annual Conference and the newly formed Mississippi Annual Conference for many years. She tirelessly served The United Methodist Church through the conference and the foundation.
