The unique connection a county agent has with the farm family and agricultural and natural resources community is the backbone of any state Extension organization and the driving concept behind the Steve D. Ruhl County Agriculture Agent Award. The award is named in memorial for Steve D. Ruhl, former Morrow County Extension director and ANR educator. Each year, award recipients are nominated by their peers, applications are submitted, and then chosen by a selection committee (assistant director for agriculture and natural resources, current JCEP ANR president and president-elect, and at least one past Steve D. Ruhl award recipient).
Nominations for the 2021 Steve D. Ruhl County Agriculture Agent Award are due by 12pm on Friday, Oct. 15. Submit a completed nomination form to Teresa Funk (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you have any questions, contact Teresa or Marcus McCartney (email@example.com), NACAA Ohio chair.
