Also in attendance at the private ceremony was Linda Fritz, standing right of Spencer, President, Tennessee Division, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Jeaneall Kutterer, Recorder of Military Service Awards, Tennessee Division, United Daughters of the Confederacy and Betty Jane Chalfant, United Daughters of Confederacy.
The group gathered at the Williamson County Archives and Museum for the ceremony to honor Spencer’s military service and commitment as a volunteer of the archives.
Spencer has spent countless hours over the years assisting individuals and families with genealogical research.
“It’s an honor to have the UDC have this ceremony in the spirit of national service.
Richard’s great, great grandfather served in the Confederacy. No one deserves this more than he. He’s such a humble servant,” noted Betty Jane Chalfant, a longtime member of the UDC and friend of Spencer.
