The award was presented during an award ceremony held Friday, Aug. 2, at the fairgrounds. The following was read during the ceremony.
This year’s recipient has been involved with the Pierce County Fair for more than 60 years, beginning as a 4-H exhibitor. He was a 4-H leader for many years, 4-H trophy donor, has served on the fair bBoard for 40 years and has been open class beef superintendent for 35 years, as well as heading the Ak-Sar-Ben beef check-in crew for many years.
