Franklin, Tennessee – Sunday, December 3, 2017 – During the Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation’s 96th annual convention at Franklin’s Cool Springs Marriott, twelve county Farm Bureaus were recognized for reaching the highest standards possible in membership, programs and teamwork. Those counties are Obion, Weakley, Bedford, Giles, Lawrence, Maury, Rutherford, Coffee, Overton, Putnam, Sullivan and Washington.
“The Pinnacle Partnership Award is the highest recognition a county Farm Bureau may receive. It encompasses the highest standards and is evidenced by the cooperation between volunteer leaders, agents and staff,” said Tennessee Farm Bureau President Jeff Aiken.
Each of the twelve county Farm Bureaus was recognized onstage with the Pinnacle Partnership Award for their exemplary records over the past year. They received a plaque with the bronze Pinnacle Partnership medallion.
“Each of these counties are to be commended for their hard work and well-earned success over the past year,” said Aiken. “We congratulate them for their high standards and ability to work together to achieve goals.”
