Harrodsburg — Cindy B. Ellsworth, Danville, was named “Volunteer of the Year” during Fort Harrod Back Country Horsemen’s annual meeting in March. Her name was added to a rotating plaque that resides in the Mercer County Extension Office.
Ellsworth is an avid trail rider and currently serves as FHBCH’s liaison to Shaker Village, helping to support and maintain riding and walking trails. She is retired from Atmos Energy in marketing and business development and currently serves on the Boyle County Industrial Foundation and the Danville-Boyle County Economic Development Partnership.
When she is not riding one of her Tennessee Walking mares, Summer or Dawn, Ellsworth works with her rescued terrier cross Emma and volunteers as a certified therapy dog team.
“I am very appreciative of being selected for the volunteer award this year,” Ellsworth said. “Fort Harrod Back Country Horsemen Is a great organization with awesome members and volunteers and a mission I fully support.”
“Cindy is a true leader and invests countless hours to help ensure central Kentucky horsemen and horsewomen have scenic trails to ride,” said FHBCH president Emily Dennis. “Our organization appreciates her enthusiasm and her willingness to step up and tackle new projects and follow through with new and existing opportunities.”
