Texas Farm Bureau honors Bettie Wrobleski with Pioneer Award

Texas Farm Bureau honors Bettie Wrobleski with Pioneer Award

SAN ANTONIO, Texas—Bettie Wrobleski was honored with the Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) District 11 Pioneer Award at TFB’s 80th Annual Meeting today.

“The Pioneer Award is designed to honor those men and women who have made an impact on Texas agriculture and Texas Farm Bureau,” TFB President Kenneth Dierschke said. “We’re pleased to recognize Bettie for her years of service and dedication to the organization and to her community.”

Wrobleski joined Grimes County Farm Bureau in 1967 and has dedicated many hours in shaping, guiding and serving the organization. She was involved in county activities, attending many state conventions during the years her husband Marion served as a board member and during his term as president.

After the death of her husband in 1995, Wrobleski was invited to serve as a board member. Within a year she became president, where she continues to serve.

Wrobleski served on the state Resolutions Committee and as chairperson of the county Forage and Hay and Ag Day committees. She takes a personal interest in sharing the importance of agriculture, especially to youth, emphasizing that farmers and ranchers provide food and fiber.

In her daily life, Wrobleski serves her community and church and actively promotes agriculture.

TFB’s Pioneer Award honors one outstanding Texas farmer or rancher in each of the organization’s 13 districts, as well as one staff member. Winners are chosen annually by a panel of their peers for their exceptional contributions to agriculture and Texas Farm Bureau.
