Wingate wins award

MACON — Colquitt County Farm Bureau Office Manager Charlotte Wingate was named winner of the 2012 Georgia Farm Bureau Outstanding Office Manager Award during the organization’s 2012 annual convention on Jekyll Island.

Wingate was recognized for her work to promote agriculture and Farm Bureau in her local community.

She works with other Ag. groups in the county each year to hold a three-day Ag Awareness Event for all fourth grade students in the county.

“I enjoy working with my team in the county office and the members of the board,” Wingate said. “They are the greatest people in the world and we do work as a team, which makes coming to work every day a joy.”

Wingate also serves on the Moultrie-Colquitt County Chamber of Commerce agriculture committee and is president of the Georgia Cotton Women.

“Without a doubt, Charlotte is the driving force behind every activity sponsored by CCFB. From organizing our tremendously successful Ag Awareness Day for all the fourth-graders in our school system to monthly board meetings, she attends to every detail,” CCFB President Stanley Bass wrote in his recommendation letter.

Wingate, who earlier this year won the GFB 9th District Outstanding County Office Manager Award, has been employed with Colquitt County Farm Bureau since 2002.

She and her husband, Gettis, have two children and four grandchildren.

Georgia Farm Bureau, the state’s largest general farm organization, is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2012.

The organization has 158 county offices. Its volunteer members actively participate in local, district and state activities that promote agriculture awareness to their non-farming neighbors.

GFB also has 20 agricultural commodity advisory committees that give the organization input on issues pertinent to the major crops and livestock grown in Georgia.

Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
