Six team members at EFCO, a Pella Company, in Monett, pictured above, recently became United States citizens after completing the necessary requirements.

In a special recognition ceremony, Mike Farquhar, president of EFCO, welcomed the new citizens. "Those of us who were fortunate enough to be born in America inherited liberties as a birthright," said Farquhar. "We did not have to do anything extra to earn those rights. You've had to go through a long process to earn citizenship, and we all respect you for accepting that challenge and completing the process."
