Dana Davis - Reporter/Parliamentarian

Term Started: 2018

While growing up on a small ranch in Charlo, I attended St. Ignatius High school from where I graduated. I then attended college in Bozeman at Montana State University.  After a short time, I married and moved to Ennis where I became a mom of two wonderful daughters and helped run a well-drilling business.  In 2001, I moved to Butte to attend Montana Tech and that’s where I joined Glacier Bank, later transferring to Big Sky Western Bank in Bozeman. By 2015, I was looking for a change and a return to a smaller town atmosphere so I applied for an opening within the Glacier Bank System and was fortunate to be relocated to Chinook where I joined the team at First Bank of Montana as Deposit Operations Manager. I am so grateful that I had the unique opportunity to move to a small welcoming community and work with so many wonderful people.

Megan Singh - Executive Director

Term Started: 2018

I moved to Chinook with my mother and brother in 2008. I attended Chinook High School and was involved in local youth groups and various high school activities throughout. Upon graduating in 2012, I moved to Havre to work and live. A year and half later, my love for small town communities and my desire to be close to family led me to move back. At this time I led a small youth group at my church and was involved in various community events from the Sugarbeet festival to local football games. Eventually my need for adventure and desire to see the world pulled me away from the comfort of home. Since the spring of 2016 to early August 2018, my life has been filled with many adventures, zipcodes, people and wonderful memories. I am content to be back in Chinook, near my parents and siblings, serving the local community and cheering on the Beeters!
