Riley Smith named to Housing Authority Board

Mayor Lawrence Henagan appointed Riley Smith as the Commissioner of the Housing Authority of the City of DeQuincy at the Monday, Oct. 9, meeting of the DeQuincy City Council.

Smith is owner and director of Riley Smith Funeral Home. The vacancy on the board occurred following the death of longtime resident and board member, Ralph Mitchell.

Mitchell served the board for the past 46 years and Smith considers it an honor to fill the position, knowing he is following someone whose roots were deep in the community and was well respected by all who knew him.

Smith and his family moved to DeQuincy in April, 2015. They are members of First United Pentecostal Church. He is currently vice president of the DeQuincy Chamber of Commerce, a board member on Old Town Hall Museum, Partner in Education with DeQuincy Middle School, a sponsor of the Veteran’s Breakfast and he is also assisting with establishing the Veterans Memorial Park.
