AG selects Johnathan Noe as 2009 distinguished alum
EKU's Department of Agriculture is pleased to announce that Mr. Johnathan T. Noe has been selected as their departmental distinguished alum for 2009.
Mr. Noe was honored during a presentation on Friday, April 3, 2009, at the annual College of Business and Technology Professional Skills Conference senior recognition luncheon.
The honor is reserved for special alumni who have distinguished themselves in their professions through excellence, dedication, and service.
Mr. Noe earned his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, Agribusiness with Minor in Business, from EKU in 2001.
Mr. Noe is currently the Vice President and Chief Lending Officer of Central Kentucky Agricultural Credit Association in Lexington, Kentucky.
His career with AgCredit spans seven years, having begun shortly after leaving EKU. Starting out as a loan officer in Richmond and then in Stanford, he was quickly promoted to Assistant Vice President and Branch Manager in the Stanford office.
Now well into the first year of his new position of Vice President and Chief Lending Officer, Mr. Noe’s responsibilities include supervision of the overall credit and appraisal functions within the association’s 17-county service area. In this role, he monitors business development and staff requirements and ensures that sound credit policies are followed. He handles loans in litigation, manages adversely classified nonaccrual loans, and manages the association’s internal credit review functions.
A native of Garrard County, agriculture has always played a big role in Mr. Noe’s life. He grew up on a farm and still farms on a small scale. He raises 15-20 feeder steers annually on his father’s farm and raised tobacco prior to the buyout. He is a member of the Garrard County Cattlemen’s Association Board of Directors.
Mr. Noe’s community service includes service as Vice Chair of the Garrard County Extension Board. AgCredit has also been a leader in support of youth activities throughout its service area in events such as the Garrard County Youth Investment Sale.
Mr. Noe continues to live in Garrard County with his wife, Keri, and their 2-year-old son, Jayden.
Congratulations, Mr. Noe, on being selected as the 2009 Distinguished Alumnus representing the Department of Agriculture.
The college also honored distinguished seniors for the year as selected by their respective departments within the College of Business and Technology. Ms. Courtney Wilson was selected as the AG departmental distinguished senior. In addition, recipients of scholarships and awards for the 2008-09 academic year were recognized. Students were honored for outstanding achievement and more than 40 area employers were on hand to engage in networking activities with college graduating seniors.
