White County Farm Bureau honored with two awards


During the Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation’s 101st annual convention at Franklin’s Cool Springs Marriott, White County Farm Bureau was recognized for reaching the most prestigious standards possible in membership, programs, and teamwork.  White County Farm Bureau President Luke Teeple was recognized onstage for the county’s exemplary program and service activities in three areas: advocacy, organizational advancement, and leadership development.

Board President Luke Teeple stated, “It is an honor to receive the Pinnacle Partnership and President Award.  This would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our board and staff who devotes so much time and effort working to improve agriculture and rural life in Tennessee.”

The Pinnacle Partnership Award is the highest recognition a county Farm Bureau may receive. It is evidenced by the cooperation between volunteer leaders, agents and staff. White County Farm Bureau is to be commended for their hard work and well-earned success over the past year.

Tennessee Farm Bureau is the largest Farm Bureau in the nation with a membership of more than 680,000. The organization has served as the voice of agriculture since 1921, and with the same mission a century later - to develop, foster, promote and protect programs for the general welfare, including economic, social, educational and political well-being of farm people of the great state of Tennessee.
