McFarland Wins Laurel Wreath Award

The man who served as master of ceremonies for the Laurel Wreath Award Luncheon got quite a surprise Wednesday.

John McFarland won this year's Laurel Wreath honor for his service in the community, his work with numerous charitable organizations and his efforts to help the community after Katrina.

McFarland is the director of marketing services at the Sun Herald newspaper. He joins a prestigious list of people who've received the award over the years.

"First of all, it was a shock. It's almost a little embarrassing to be the MC... But it's really an honor. I know so many people on that list and I know what they have done, so it's really an honor," McFarland said.

The award was presented during a Coast Chamber luncheon.
