First woman to hold the position of President in KWUA history
Klamath Falls, Ore. - At its regular March meeting, the KWUA Board of Directors unanimously elected Tricia Hill from Merrill, Oregon, as its President. She is the first woman to be President during the 66 years of KWUA’s existence.
A fourth-generation Klamath Basin farmer, Tricia owns and operates her family farm, Gold Dust & Walker Farms, along with her father, uncle, and brother. Her degrees in Law and Environmental Studies from the University of Oregon help her navigate the complex world of regulations, finance, and generational culture changes her family farm faces on a daily basis.
Personally, and as a Board member of KWUA, she devotes a significant amount of time working with interested parties towards a permanent solution for the “Klamath Problem.”
When not working or attending water meetings, she spends her free time playing in her garden, teaching her daughters to ride horses, and reading anything she can get her hands on.
The other Board officers are: Ben DuVal, Vice President; Jerry Enman, Secretary; and Luke Robison, Treasurer.
