Sharon King of the Caddo County Farm Bureau office was honored as the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Secretary of the Year at the OKFB 73rd Annual Meeting Nov. 14 in Tulsa.
King has worked in the Caddo County office for 11 years. Sharon said her favorite part of her job is coordinating events with her county board and members. This is King’s third time to be nominated as District 3’s Secretary of the Year and her first time to named the OKFB Secretary of the Year.
“It blows my mind,” King said. “I love it, and I’m so very thankful for Farm Bureau.”
County secretaries serve as the face of the county Farm Bureau office with not only customers but also with potential new members.
“Sharon is always willing to do anything for Caddo County Farm Bureau,” said Brittany Mikles, OKFB field representative for southwest Oklahoma. “She is so easy to work with and there’s no doubt she deserves this award.”
King and her husband live in Eakley, Oklahoma, where they farm. They have three children and eight grandchildren.
King will receive an expense-paid trip to the 2015 American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting in San Diego for being selected as OKFB Secretary of the Year.
