Rice Retires After Serving 20 Years on WoodmenLife National Board of Directors

Daniel W. Rice III of Kinston, N.C., is retiring from the National Board of Directors of WoodmenLife after 20 years of service.

Rice has been a member of WoodmenLife for 47 years and currently serves as president of WoodmenLife NC Chapter 46 in Kinston. He has many fond memories of meeting other members and working with them to improve communities across the country. “Socializing with members at conventions and meetings has exposed me to the vast differences that exist in our organization, with the unifying factor of community service,” Rice said.

Retired as Director of Community Services at the Caswell Center in Kinston, Rice and his wife, Johnnee, plan to continue their involvement with WoodmenLife at the local level, giving back to the community and traveling to visit family.

“I am fortunate to have been part of an organization that provides so many opportunities and resources to serve the community, in addition to financial products that protect families,” said Rice.

“We are thankful to Danny for his many years of guidance and knowledge,” said Chairman, President & CEO Patrick L. Dees. “Our organization is better for having him as a leader, and we send him off with best wishes for the future.”
