Date Honored: 10/04/1999

1999 D.W. Brooks Award for Excellence in Public Service Extension

Steve Brady piloted a project in Gwinnett County to use satellite communication to train thousands of commercial pesticide applicators and landscape professionals.

He also created Creative Enterprises Horticulture Therapy Project. He and the Gwinnett Master Gardeners designed the program to train physically and mentally challenged adults in basic horticulture skills that enable them to enter the work force.

Brady spearheaded a program that converted more than 10,000 cubic yards of trees and other yard waste into mulch. And his work with distance learning made him a sought-after conference speaker nationwide.
