Hershberger named to County Election Board
Thursday, November 07, 2013 10:00 AM
Hanover resident Joshua Hershberger has been appointed as the Republican representative to the County Election Board.
Hershberger replaces former board member Roy Eaglin, who died in July after serving for more than 12 years on the board.
Hershberger, an attorney at Hershberger Legal, graduated magna cum laude from Cooley Law School in Lansing, Mich., and summa cum laude with a degree in political science from Pensacola Christian College in Pensacola, Fla. He also won the school's highest award, the President's Citation of Merit.
Hershberger serves as general counsel or as a board member on several nonprofit organizations and as counsel for Church Law Institute, a Nashville, Tenn.,-based organization that assists religious nonprofits with legal issues.
Locally, Hershberger serves as student ministry pastor at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Hanover. He lives in Hanover with his wife, Carissa, and their daughter, Aryana.
"The right to vote is the cornerstone of American government," Hershberger said in a news release. "I am honored to join Merritt Alcorn and Karen Mannix, the other members of the election board, in working to ensure the integrity of our county voting process and to encourage greater participation in elections."
Hershberger was sworn into his position last week by Alcorn.
