Arkansas Farm Bureau President Randy Veach presented the President’s Award Nov. 29 to Stone County President Leo Sutterfield at the organization’s annual convention at the Hot Springs Convention Center.

“Our county did a great job, and I’m proud of the leadership. It was a team effort,” Sutterfield said.

The 10 Gold Star categories are membership acquisition, organization, public relations, commodity services, governmental affairs, women’s and Young Farmers & Ranchers activities, member services, safety, and youth.

The other finalists for the President’s Award were Cross, Jackson, Independence and Benton counties.
