Edith Jackson of Todd County accepts her award.
Pennyrile Allied Community Service held its annual dinner Tuesday night at Barkley Lodge, where two longtime contributors and the agency’s recently retired leader received honors.
Receiving the Neville Rust Award, which is the highest honor PACS gives, were Edith Jackson of Todd County and Bob Cox of Caldwell County. The pair was recognized for going above and beyond the call of duty to assist the most needy in the nine county region through PACS.
It was a farewell for Ms. Jackson, who says she is having to step down due to reasons out of her control.
Recognized for his 34 years of service as Executive Director before recently retiring was John Tedder, who said none of the progress could have been made if not for the men and women on the front lines for PACS.
The current Executive Director at PACS is Judy Peterson, who headed up this year’s Board of Directors Dinner with Chairman and Trigg County Judge-Executive Stan Humphries.
Retired Executive Director John Tedder was honored
