In a ceremony on August 28, 2017, President Joyce Jones of the Bell County Chapter 101 United Daughters of the Confederacy presented the Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal to Annette Lucksinger of the Bell County Historical Commission and the Bell County Genealogical Society.  Nancy Kelsey, who worked very hard to bring this event about, read the citation during the ceremony. 

Annette has published numerous articles reporting the Confederate history of Bell County and the activities of both the Sons of Confederate Veterans and United Daughters of the Confederacy.  
The Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Metal Award includes a Medal and Certificate.  It is the highest non-lineage Award presented by the United Daughters of the Confederacy to a member or non-member adult.
