“This year, we are really looking forward to honoring our friend and longtime supporter Andy Womack,” said Mike Cowles, executive of the Heart of Tennessee Chapter.
Womack has been an “advocate and volunteer leader” for the Red Cross for many years and chapter members are very proud to be able to take this opportunity to thank him, he said.
A Vietnam veteran who served in the U.S. Army, Womack is a Middle Tennessee State University alumnus and has resided in Murfreesboro since 1957.
For more than 30 years, Womack has worked as a State Farm Insurance agent Middle Tennessee. He has also served on the board of directors for the United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties, as well as chaired the board for the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce.
However, Womack is best known for his 12-year career in the Tennessee General Assembly, where he served on various committees in the Senate as a Rutherford County delegate.
