CORPUS CHRISTI -- For her years of support for Texas agriculture and the Farm Bureau cause, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison received the organization’s highest honor at Texas Farm Bureau’s 78th annual meeting Dec. 4. Hutchison is the first U.S. senator to receive this prestigious award, according to a Dec. 4 Texas Farm Bureau press release.

In 1993, she won a special election for U.S. Senate -- a post she has held until announcing her retirement this year. During her years of political service, Hutchison worked to preserve Texas’ natural resources, financial health, and educational future.

Hutchison worked alongside the Texas Farm Bureau members and leaders to protect the rights of all Texans. She regularly attended the organization’s annual meetings and often made presentations to members at various forums.

The Texas Farm Bureau’s Distinguished Service Award is presented to individuals who demonstrate significant contributions to both Texas agriculture and to the Farm Bureau cause. Recipients are chosen through a unanimous vote of the Texas Farm Bureau board of directors.

Over the course of Texas Farm Bureau’s 78-year history, only 28 individuals have been recognized with the Distinguished Service Award -- formerly called the Meritorious Service Award. Past winners include current American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman, as well as several other past Texas Farm Bureau presidents, a Texas governor, and state senators.
