Mason Hall Family and Community Education Club member and the FCE Obion County Council secretary Sarah Allen recently won first place in the Tennessee Association FCE State Creative Writing Essay Contest.
Mrs. Allen, the wife of Frank Allen, was presented with this high honor at the annual State Tennessee Association Family and Community Education Convention in Jackson.
The title of Mrs. Allen’s winning essay is “The Retired Couple.” This essay features the daily adventures of Sarah and Frank as they experience life as a happily retired couple moving from the farm to town and going through life long possessions.
Obion County FCE offers a bevy of local, county and state contest where FCE members are constantly recognized for their outstanding work. Mrs. Allen’s winning essay is a prime example of the quality work that Obion County FCE members are known for, Obion County University of Tennessee Extension agent Benita Giffin said.
