Steve N. Wilson Finishes Term with South Shore Foundation
January 2008

Steve N. Wilson completed a three-year term on the board of the South Shore Foundation at the end of 2007. Wilson is a retired director of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and resides in Norfork.

South Shore Foundation is the charitable arm of NATCO Communications at Flippin. The company includes NATCO telephone services and NATCO Technologies Internet services. 

Commenting on the work of the South Shore Foundation, Wilson said, “The focus on education was rewarding. I was impressed with the educational thrust of our grants from scholarships to grants to outstanding teachers to classroom supplements teaching about wise choices for our environment (Audubon Adventures ecology kits).”

A highlight of his service as a member of the South Shore Foundation Board of Directors, he said, was supporting a grant to Friends of the North Fork and White Rivers to distribute educational materials about the watershed to the public.

Other community activities of Wilson include being a board member or officer of the Arkansas Game & Fish Foundation, the Arkansas Wildlife Federation, and North Arkansas Fly Fishers.

Wilson has been named to the Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame, received the highest award given by the International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies in 1998, received the C.W. Watson Award from the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies in 2000, and was named a Distinguished Alumni of Arkansas Tech University in 2000.

A graduate of Batesville High School and Arkansas Tech University, Wilson also holds a master’s degree in zoology from the University of Arkansas. Wilson and his wife, Jo, a retired teacher and elementary school principal, have two grown children and three grandchildren. They attend Norfork United Methodist Church.  

South Shore Foundation makes grants to nonprofit groups for projects that advance education, preserve the environment, and promote economic development in the South Shore region of northern Arkansas.
