David G. Lunceford, manager of the Gulf Coast Branch of the Marine D e p a r t m e n t of Exxon Company, U.S.A., was recently elected chairman of the board and president of the National River Academy for the year 1981- 82, Thomas Tooker, executive director of the academy, announced.

Mr. Lunceford has served as Exxon's representative on the academy's board of directors since March 1978, and has served as vice chairman since May 1979. He replaces Frank Stegbauer, vice p r e s i d e n t of Southern Towing Company, Memphis, who served as the chairman and president of the academy for two years.

During Mr. Stegbauer's term as board chairman and president, the student population increased 84 percent, resulting in the building of two student housing units.

In addition, he was instrumental in initiating three new programs at the academy: a two-week basic engineering course, a oneweek d i e t i c i a n management course, and an audiovisual aids library and program planning division.
