Mississippi Forestry Commission (MFC) employee Berry Thomas, of Shubuta, recently received the Mississippi Forestry Association’s (MFA) inaugural Harold Anderson Award of Excellence.
The Harold Anderson Award of Excellence recognizes an MFC employee who represents the agency, and state, well and goes above and beyond the call of duty to promote forestry in Mississippi.
“We are very proud of Berry and his recognition by the Mississippi Forestry Association,” said Russell Bozeman, MFC State Forester. “His work with the Clarke County Forestry Association and other community involvement makes him extremely deserving of this award.”
Thomas was instrumental in revitalizing the Clarke County Forestry Association. He is also active in his local community – serving as a deacon in his church, volunteering with the Clarke County 4-H and serves as the MSU Extension Disaster Assistance Team for Clarke County.
