At its Oct. 13 meeting, the board approved the addition of Christy Frazier-Moore and Matt Funke.

She resides in Poplar Bluff with her husband, Clayton, and children Jackson and Kenzie.
Funke is a Poplar Bluff High School graduate. After beginning his banking career out of the area, he moved back to Poplar Bluff in 2003. For the past 12 years, he has served as an Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Southern Bank, where he oversees accounting and finance activities, human resources, and facilities management functions.
His civic involvement includes service as financial secretary and deacon at Fellowship General Baptist Church, member and director of the local Rotary Club, trustee and President for the Poplar Bluff Municipal Library, and board member and Chairman for the Poplar Bluff Chamber of Commerce. Funke is married to Jennifer and the couple have three children: Jack, Claire, and Jude.
“We are thrilled to add both Christy and Matt to our team,” said Michelle Reynolds, Executive Director of the Endowment Trust and Director of Development at Three Rivers College. “Both are respected and heavily involved in the Poplar Bluff community, and it’s an honor that they are willing to serve on our board to continue to improve Three Rivers College and our local communities.”
The Three Rivers Endowment Trust formed in 2010 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, designated by Three Rivers College to receive and manage gifts on behalf of the College. It acts as a trustee for donations to assure that gifts are distributed in the manner specified by the donor.
The Three Rivers Endowment Trust recently wrapped up a capital campaign which assisted in the construction of three buildings. It is involved in several activities throughout the service area. Tax-deductible gifts assist in awarding scholarships and granting other needs not met in the budget.
