He also serves as a chief for the Mercer County Fire District Station 11 in Dixville, and currently serves on the boards for the Kendyl and Friends Foundation board, the Daniel Boone Red Cross, the Fort Harrod Beef Festival and is vice president of the Mercer County Fair and Horse Show.

“I was raised to give back to the community,” said Best. “This county has been over-the-top good to me over the years and I want to give back to it as much as I can.”
