Veranda Ministries founder to be recognized as a "Huck's Hero" in March 2018
Mary Anne Oglesby-Sutherly, founder and executive director of Veranda Ministries, was recognized during “Huck’s Heroes,” a special segment of Gov. Mike Huckabee’s show “Huckabee” that aired nationally March 3 on Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN).
Huckabee selects an everyday American hero from submitted nominations to feature during each Huckabee episode as “Huck’s Hero.” Previous honorees have included teachers, soldiers, policemen and religious leaders, those who “have displayed a genuine act of bravery in his or her community.”
Oglesby-Sutherly was notified of her selection as a “Huck’s Hero,” in late November 2017 for her vision of establishing Veranda Ministries and its work in Sumner County.
