Becky joined the Santel board in 2017 and resides in the Letcher exchange. She and her husband William have one daughter. Becky graduated from SD School of Mines & Technology and works for POET Biorefining of Mitchell where she has been the General Manager since 2012. She has been a part of the State Emergency Response Commission, Mitchell Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, Davison County LEPC and the MTI Ag Advisory Board.
Giving back to the community is important to Becky. She feels that using her individual skills and experience, and working collaboratively with this cooperative board and staff, is a great way she can contribute. Local cooperatives keep costs down for rural residents in areas of low population density. Says Pitz, “It’s important to keep cooperatives and their patrons competitive not only with low costs but with cutting edge technology as well.”
