2011 Senior Citizen of the Year

 An article in the November 8, 2011 issue of the Herald Record, published in West Union, WV, reported that brother Paul McCutchan, a faithful member of the West Union church of Christ, was chosen to be honored as the Senior Citizen of the Year in Doddridge County. An Awards Ceremony was conducted November 13.

Terry Varner, preacher for the West Union church of Christ, reported in his November 20 church bulletin, “Unable to attend the FFA Convention this year due to being confined to the Rehab in Salem, Paul was awarded a plaque with the following inscription: ‘Honorary American FFA Degree 84th National FFA Convention.’ This is the highest honor one can receive from the FFA.”
