Mary Helen Benford of Chambers County received an Individual Leadership Award for local and community service from the Alabama Farmers Federation during an awards ceremony Dec. 4.
Although she did not grow up on a farm, Benford made agriculture her life’s passion after marrying a farmer. She has shown a commitment to educating youth about agriculture through organizing farm tours for third-graders, hosting Ag in the Classroom workshops for local elementary school teachers and helping facilitate the Chambers County Book Barn program.

Benford received the award during the second general session of the Federation’s 96th annual meeting in Montgomery from Federation Executive Director Paul Pinyan, left.
