Aguirre-Herrera received the award during TFB’s 80th Annual Meeting Dec. 8 in San Antonio.
The KWED Radio and Seguin Daily News serves Guadalupe and surrounding counties. The Guadalupe County Farm Bureau (CFB) board of directors nominated Aguirre-Herrera for the award in the category for publications distributed to markets under 50,000 in population.
“She has placed importance on covering agriculture for the radio and newspaper,” the county board said. “Cindy has covered our local affairs to ensure the position of Texas Farm Bureau and agriculture stays in the public eye.”
Guadalupe CFB also noted that for years Aguirre-Herrera has worked with the organization to promote its upcoming events by recording public service announcements and ensuring the community is aware of Farm Bureau’s activities.
