Local FCA liaison Chad Harrison presented Richmond with the award at the FCA’s fundraising banquet on March 10 at the high school.

“Each year, we like to recognize someone who exemplifies one of FCA’s core values. He exemplifies all four: excellence, serving, teamwork and integrity,” Harrison told the audience.

“He treats everyone the same, with respect and kindness. He is someone who has served, and continues to serve in a capacity where he is seldom seen, but often heard.”

Richmond, who has served as the ‘Voice of the Yellow Jackets’ for 35 years, said he was honored and surprised to receive the prestigious award.

“It’s been fun bringing Trousdale County football, basketball all these years,” he said. “I’ve done it for several years and hope to do it several more. Thank you so much for this award.”
