Dr. David Lee Hunter proves crowd pleaser at Extension banquet

Gradyville native Dr. David Lee Hunter proved why he is in such demand as a speaker at the first annual Adair county Extension Leadership Appreciation Banquet.

Quoting generously from his book, Childhood Memories of Life on the Farm and More . . ., Dr. Hunter kept the crowd of over 200 laughing with stories in verse such as "The Billy Goat that Ate the Lye Soap," "Sedrick and the Runaway Mule," and "The Egg Sucking Dog," and near tears with a tribute to his mother and dad, and "The American Flag."

Given special awards for leadership were the following:

Dwayne Loy, for agriculture

Denise Steward, for home economics

Cindi Alexander, for 4-H Youth Development

Mary Allender for community development, and

The Vince Pfefferman family for extension family of the year.

Richard Lee Walker served as master of ceremonies. Following the standing ovation given Dr. Hunter, Walker told him, "You exemplify the American Dream." The invocation was given by H.W. Roach. Vince Pfefferman welcomed the group.

Also speaking were Cheryl Whitt, and David Herbst.

Sue Stivers introduced the speaker. Special recognition was given to the Bank of Columbia, Community Trust Bank, First National Bank, and Farm Credit Services for sponsoring the dinner and event.

Lindsey Wilson's Jeff Willis supervised the preparation of the dinner.

The Extension District Board includes Dwayne Loy,

chairman, Vince Pfefferman, vice chairman, Home Goodin, secretary, Danny Wilkinson, treasurer, and James Keltner, Mildred Wilson, and Jerry Vaughan, county judge executive.

The extension council includes Vince Pfefferman, president, Danny Wilkinson, vice president, Yvonne Marshall, secretary, Cindi Alexander, Mary Allender, Anna Burton, Virgie Claycomb, Herbert Graves, Wid Harris, Ellen Hingle, David Hutchison, James Keltner, Ethelean Keltner, Dwayne Loy, Mark Meyer, H.W. Roach, Joe Rogers, Denise Stewart, Richard Walker, Billy Joe Wethington, and Mildred Wilson.
