36th Annual Farm City Breakfast and Awards

 

In honor of local agriculturalists and their outstanding accomplishments, the annual Farm City event offered a great breakfast, agriculture appreciation speeches, as well as several agricultural awards.

High School speakers at the event included the Chapter President of Madisonville North Hopkins’ FFA Club, Cody Gipson; Chapter President of Hopkins County Central’s FFA Club, Sean Menser; President of the Midnight Walkers 4-H Club and member of the MNHHS 4-H Club, Amanda Morrow; and member of the Midnight Walkers 4-H Club and MNHHS 4-H Club, Matthew Cunningham.

Though each of the speakers presented their ideas differently, one core point remained the same: we should be proud and thankful for the many important services agriculturalists provide to the nation.

Following the students’ speeches, the President of Madisonville’s Noon Kiwanis Club, Jason Hawkins, presented awards for the Yield Contest to Danny Basham (corn) and Brian Lynn (soybeans). Next, the County Extension Agent for Agriculture, George Kelley, awarded both Chester and Wanda Duncan (Duncan Farm) with the Farm Family of the Year Award, . Presented by Andy Rideout, a County Extension Agent for Horticulture, the Friend of Agriculture award went to both Herbert and Virginia Cheney, whereas the award of Farm City Educator of the Year, which was presented by Hopkins County District Conservationist Pennie Day, was given to Vicki Presley.

Along with his kind closing remarks, Community Development Vice-Chair with the Chamber of Commerce, Ronnie Noel, announced the winner of the "Hog Raffle" as well, which has been ongoing throughout the last few weeks. Beating out hundreds of entrants, Sherri Lewis came away with the Chamber’s whole pig in the end.

For their hard work and contribution to the community, iSurf News would like to congratulate all the award winners at this year’s Farm City Breakfast and Awards Ceremony. In addition, every person involved with agriculture in our community is appreciated as well. We thank all of you for your commitment to helping our community and nation via agriculture.
