Buckeye Farm News
Marilyn Morrison grew up on a Darke County farm that her husband, Paul, and one of their sons, Jeremy, now operate. They raise hogs, corn, beans and wheat. Morrison has been such an active member of the county Farm Bureau that Organization Director Mandy Havener said “she volunteers for it seems everything.”
Morrison has been a Farm Bureau member for about 35 years and is still active with the women’s committee. She has been on the county board, a membership chair and state delegate. She has been an Ambassador Award winner several times. She works part time as a unit clerk at Wayne Hospital in Greenville and also is active as a 4-H advisor. The couple have four adult children and six grandchildren.
Since 1992, Judy Roush has been working with Ohio Farm Bureau members and teachers on how to share agriculture’s story with students and teachers. She grew up on a Clinton County farm and spent more than 20 years working with her husband, Roy, on their Pickaway County farm where they raise soybeans and wheat. They have been married nearly 41 years and have three daughters and five grandchildren. She is a former 4-H advisor and avid Ohio State University men’s basketball fan.
“It has been rewarding to meet educators from Ohio and across the country through the Ag in the Classroom network who are passionate about helping children learn where their food comes from,” she said.
