Rex McWhorter

Fourth District Magistrate


I am from Clinton County and came to BG in 1969 to go to WKU. I graduated from WKU in 1973 with a Agriculture degree. I met my wife, June, at WKU in the spring of 1970 and we were married after college in 1973.

I started my career at Bowling Green Bank & Trust. Worked there for 5.5 years and then went to Federal Land Bank as branch Manager, stayed for 5.5 years and then went to Gary Force Inc. as a business manager. I worked for Gary Force for 12.5 years and then bought Residential Mortgage Corporation in 1997. RMC was sold to First Rate Mortgage in 2010 and I currently serve as a loan officer for First Rate Mortgage.

I am currently Magistrate of the 4th district and have enjoyed serving since January 2015. I have 4 wonderful children and have been very blessed by the good Lord for my family. Nicholas is an appraiser, Jeremy is a chiropractor, Dustin is a CPA, and Morgan is a senior to be at WKU.
