St. Francisville Mayor Billy D’Aquilla proclaimed Feb. 12 as “Terry Craighead Day” at the Feb. 10 Board of Aldermen meeting in recognition of Craighead’s retirement after 26 years as Entergy’s utility service man in the community.

Craighead, a resident of Ethel, began his career in 1978 with Gulf States Utilities.

“I plan to devote myself to my tree-trimming business,” Craighead said.

He will be replaced by Brad Hopkins.
