Vestry Nominations: The vestry received three nominations for the vestry and closed nominations. Below is information about each of these members.



Beverly Grigsby

I have been a member of St. Paul’s Batesville since I was 12 years old. St. Paul’s is home and family. It has been there for me during heartache, death and happiness. I hope I can give back some part that has been given to me.


Mike Mundy

My name is Mike Mundy. I have lived in Batesville for 24 years and am retired from a 22-year career in the United States Navy and semi-retired from a 20-year career in law enforcement. I have been a member of St. Paul’s for 4 years. After attending several churches in the past, I knew I had found my church home after one service at St. Paul’s. I believe that being a member of the Vestry would allow me to contribute in a different way to my church. I would enjoy the opportunity to serve at St. Paul’s in this way.


Hayes Olson

Hayes is a cradle Episcopalian. Born in Memphis (year undisclosed) Hayes has lived in Batesville and attended St. Paul’s since 1994.

As a realtor in the area, she sees firsthand the growth of Batesville and Independence County. “Our congregation is an integral part of this community.”

Hayes and Bill have been married for 30 years. “Our two children baptized at St. Paul’s and countless memories are tied into our fabric. Our daughter, Peyton, is also a member and currently teaching Special Education at Batesville High School. We own The Property Shoppe, a Real Estate and Property Management Company located in Southside. We live downtown and are frequently seen taking our dog, Rocky, on golf cart rides in the Historic District.”
