Chairman of the Board and CEO of Sanderson Farms, Joe F. Sanderson was honored by Wayne County Sheriff Jody Ashley recently. Sanderson was given an honorary Sheriff’s badge by Ashley. Ashley says the tradition is reserved for people who serve the community with distinction. “Mr. Sanderson goes above and beyond in performing noteworthy service to Wayne County,” stated Ashley. The badge does not give the holder any arresting powers or official duties as a law enforcement officer. It is given to private citizens who have performed a noteworthy accolade for someone or have done something that benefits the community.
