Statesville, NC: Michael R. Morton CEO of Carolina Farm Credit announces Ben Luther, of Mt. Ulla as a lucky winner in the company's quarterly cap contest. The cap contest is a quarterly drawing awarding four people for wearing a Carolina Farm Credit cap. An employee or director spots an individual wearing a Carolina Farm Credit cap and gets their name and address to enter them in the drawing. At the end of each quarter, Carolina Farm Credit draws to award four winners, $50 each. There have been cap sightings from all across the 54 counties that Carolina Farm Credit serves. This is a small way of showing our appreciation to our customers and friends who support our business and show it by wearing our caps.
