From our new Lieutenant Governor:

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Ginger Riggs and I have been married to my husband, Rock since 1996. We live in Sevierville and we have two children. Madison age 20 earned her Gold Award in Girl Scouts and is a junior at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Parker age 17 recently earned his rank of Eagle Scout and is a senior at the Gatlinburg-Pittman High School.
I have been in real estate since 2005 and was a co-owner of a real estate company from 2008-2013. I decided to retire my real estate license in November of 2016.

I have been a proud member of the Kiwanis Club of Sevierville since 2009 and served as the treasurer from 2012-2017. I just completed a term serving as the President of the Sevierville club and was honored to be asked to be the Lieutenant Governor for the 2019-2020 term. I look forward to serving as your Lieutenant Governor and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you.

From our new Lieutenant Governor-Elect:

I am Pete Davis.  I have been an active member of Maryville Kiwanis for five years now. From the beginning I wanted to serve my community, its children and my club however was deemed necessary. I chaired and worked on numerous committees and recently completed my term as President of Maryville Kiwanis. It was a great year for me, and now I have been chosen to serve as Lt. Governor Elect of our division along with being named as the KT District Administrator of Aktion Club. I eagerly look forward to working with Ginger and everyone in our division and district.

I have been married to my wonderful and supporting wife Wanda for 28 years. We have two children, our son Spencer who is an attorney for the US Federal Reserve in Washington, DC and our daughter Ashley who is an assistant principal in Fort Worth, TX.

I retired 15 years ago after serving 30 years as a police officer in San Antonio, TX. We transplanted and are very happy to live in Maryville and Tennessee now. My hobbies are photography (I always have a camera) and working on my computers doing graphics, writing, our Maryville Kiwanis website and assisting with our Kourier monthly newsletter.

If there is anything I can do to assist you donít hesitate to ask. Service was what I did during my career and now do with Kiwanis.
