ROCKY MOUNT, Va. (PRWEB) October 31, 2019
A native of Mecklenburg County, Virginia, Woodson spent his youth helping his grandfather string together tobacco by hand on his Lunenburg County farm in the late summers and early fall.
Woodson graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in economics and a concentration in finance from Virginia State University in Petersburg, Virginia. He then went on to pursue his career in the mortgage industry, where he has remained for 14 years. After a brief tenure outside the organization, he now serves as a dual role loan officer with FCV, making loans for land and agricultural purposes as well as specializing in construction and residential home loans.
Woodson’s strong sense of community and youth mentorship is apparent in his high level of involvement. He is a former member of the Botetourt Rotary Club as well as the Roanoke Kiwanis Club, a community service organization that serves the needs of children, older adults and the environment. He also serves in the children’s ministry at his local church, and has been involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters in Lynchburg, Virginia.
These days, he spends his free time with his wife and his own 4 boys, coaching their various sports endeavors. He also enjoys hunting with his father, cooking (and eating!) a good meal, playing golf with his buddies, and reading a good book.
He is thrilled to help further the vision of Farm Credit to be rural America’s lender of choice. In regards to his new role with FCV, Woodson said, “I am excited to partner with our fantastic customer base here in Franklin County and beyond to provide practical and convenient loan solutions for current and future farmers, landowners and homeowners!”
