The First Farmers Co-op of Henderson honored Mike Clayton Friday in anticipation of his upcoming retirement. Clayton, who has served the Chester County community for 47 years, began working on the dock at the Co-op at 17-years-old. “He’s been an integral part of the success of the First Farmers Co-op as a sales and marketing coordinator,” said Director Rob White.
Clayton shared that he always had complete confidence when visiting farmers, knowing he had the resources behind him to help with whatever needs arose. “It made my job very easy because of the support that’s in this room,” he said. Finally, Clayton left those in attendance with seven words for success in life: Use things, Love people and Worship the Devine.
