Dr. Monte Anderson wins Agriculture Educator Award

Columbus, Ohio  – One of Ohio’s finest was awarded at the 95th Annual Meeting of OFBF. Dr. Anderson of Wilmington College was honored for his years of dedicated service and the nurturing of the many students that have studied under him during his tenure.

While the Ohio Farm Bureau Annual Meeting serves as the keystone event for our delegates to set state and national policy it is also a venue where Ohio Farm Bureau honors the best of the best and highlights the accomplishments of the previous year.

The Agriculture Educator Award is the highest award Ohio Farm Bureau can bestow upon a teacher in the state. Winners must exhibit a high acumen, unparalleled commitment to students, and a true passion for agriculture. Dr. Anderson exceeded all three.

Making the recognition even more memorable was the fact that many of Dr. Anderson’s former students were sitting out in the crowd of over 400 guests. His students have gone on to exceed in many different disciplines within agriculture and many now volunteer their time serving as leaders with Farm Bureau.

Dr. Anderson was humble in his acceptance speech and thanked all of those parents for sharing their sons and daughters with Wilmington College. Clinton County Farm Bureau was honored to such an outstanding member to nominate. Dr. Anderson’s award should serve as a source of great pride for the entire Farm Bureau community.
