Honor and Recognition for Significant Contributions in Agriculture
In 2000, the Mid-Columbia Agriculture Hall of Fame was formed. The purpose of the event is to give recognition and honor to individuals who have made outstanding contributions in the field of agriculture. The Mid-Columbia Agriculture Hall of Fame is intended for the members of Greater Franklin County region's agricultural community, as well as those in the surrounding areas in the same industry. Some of the criteria in choosing the recipients of the award are the person's expertise, achievements, creative innovations, as well as his dedication, selflessness and generosity that resulted to great impact in the enhancement of the area's agricultural condition.
