Being named to a hall of fame is always a prestigious honor. Georgia's Agricultural Hall of Fame honors agriculture commissioners, research scientists, agribusiness leaders and a host of other agriculture supporters.
If you know someone worthy of being inducted into the Georgia Agricultural Hall of Fame, now is the time to make your nomination for the 2004 inductees. Each year the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Alumni Association recognizes agricultural leaders in Georgia by selecting members of the hall of fame.
Honors Georgia ag leaders
"The Georgia Agricultural Hall of Fame pays tribute to agricultural leaders who have made extraordinary contributions to agriculture and agribusiness industries in Georgia," said Juli Fields of the UGA CAES Alumni Association. "The program is designed to give appropriate recognition to those who have made significant achievements in agriculture, agribusiness industries, and the service institutions."

Award of Excellence an honor, too
