Texas Farm Bureau recognizes L.C. Harrison with Pioneer Award

SAN ANTONIO, Texas—A true promoter of agriculture, L.C. Harrison was recognized with the Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) District 3 Pioneer Award today at TFB’s 80th Annual Meeting.

“The Pioneer Award recognizes those men and women who have worked to promote Texas agriculture and have been involved in Texas Farm Bureau,” TFB President Kenneth Dierschke said. “We’re pleased to recognize L.C. Harrison for his hard work and dedication.”

Harrison joined the Clay County Farm Bureau in 1964 and served as its president for six years. In 1993, the lifelong resident of the Wichita-Clay counties area was elected as the TFB state director for District 3.

In addition to serving on a number of local and state TFB committees, Harrison has served on the boards of the Texas Beef Council, the Clay County Appraisal District, Clay County 9-Man, Capital Farm Credit and the Clay County Memorial Hospital. He is a member of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association and vice president of the Clay County Pioneer Association.

Harrison runs a cow-calf/yearling operation and raises wheat and hay.

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.
