The San Joaquin County Agricultural Hall of Fame nomination period for outstanding agricultural leaders and mentors in the community is closing on Wednesday, Dec. 2. Now in its 36th year, the Agricultural Hall of Fame honors those individuals who have contributed to agriculture and to their community in significant ways. Each year, awards are given to at least three living recipients, as well as posthumous ones.
“While we won’t be able to induct them in person this calendar year, we still want to get the Class of 2020 chosen this year,” said Timm Quinn, Special Events Director/Leadership Stockton Director with the Greater Stockton Chamber of Commerce. “We will induct the Class of 2020 in person when larger in person gatherings are deemed safe in 2021.”
All those previously recognized in the Agricultural Hall of Fame have their photographs and biographies on display at the San Joaquin Historical Society & Museum in Micke Grove Park and in the lobby of the Robert J. Cabral Ag Center. They are also listed on the Chamber Website on the Ag Hall of Fame page at http://stocktonchamber.org/ag-hall-of-fame/
Nomination forms are available from the Greater Stockton Chamber of Commerce website, and need to be submitted by 5 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2020 in order to be considered.
