Jamey Bachman, executive director of Volunteer Starkville and president of the local Modern Woodmen chapter, has been chosen as the recipient of Modern Woodmen of America's national Fraternalist of the Year Award. Bachman will receive recognition during a regional meeting tomorrow in Jacksonville, Tennessee.

"I was shocked when Barbara (Coats) told me that I won," Bachman said. "I don't know how many applications were submitted, but I know every fraternal representative nationwide was encouraged to submit a name for consideration."
