Member of Vermont's Agricultural Development Division Honored For Public Service

A member of the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets was honored at the state Public Service Recognition Celebration on Tuesday at the Capitol Plaza Hotel.

Faith Raymond was honored by the state for the important role she plays in growing Vermont’s farm economy. As a member of the Agricultural Development Division, she is often the first contact who can lead to economic assistance for farmers, producers, small companies and the public. Faith’s “can do” attitude is critical to customers as they grow their farms or companies, and the valuable information she provides to the public helps them make the best possible decisions in a timely manner.

Faith also goes out of her way to promote agriculture as an editor with the Agency’s newspaper, Agriview. This monthly publication is regarded as the “bible” for farmers as they rely on it for updates on programs, regulations and events. Faith’s leadership in the agriculture community and beyond is making a difference today and will for years to come.

Vemront Agriculture Secretary Anson Tebbetts thanked Faith and other state employees for their service.
