Oklahoma Farm Bureau presented Garvin County with the Lewis H. Munn Farm Bureau Builders Award during the OKFB 73rd Annual Convention on Nov. 14 in Tulsa.
The award is named after the second president of Oklahoma Farm Bureau, and each year a specific area of involvement is judged for the award. This year’s area was political education.
Garvin County established a committee to develop areas of political education that would benefit not only Farm Bureau members but also the general public. By partnering with the Pauls Valley Chamber of Commerce, the committee presented a local program on the U.S. Constitution.
Dale Schauer, Garvin County Farm Bureau president, said the goal of the event was to help educate people in their community about the U.S. Constitution.
The lectureship featured detailed information on the U.S. Constitution, including the process of writing and practical application. A lengthy question and answer session was held during the program, which showed the value and interest in the topic.
