Written by WBTA STAFF on March 5, 2018
2018 Wyoming County Friends of Agriculture were announced at Pride of Agriculture Good Neighbor Dinner on Saturday, March 2 at the North Java Fire Hall. Will and Louise Herrick were honored for their commitment to helping youth explore opportunities for the future in agriculture.
The Herricks were celebrated for their tireless support of the Wyoming County 4-H, Junior Holstein Club and Dairy Princess activities. They have coached teams for Dairy Bowl contests for both 4-H and Junior Holstein. As leaders of the Barnstormers 4-H Club, they actively seek opportunities for youth to learn about agriculture as a career path. They have energetically supported the Dairy Princess Program for several years. Louise serves on the 4-H Home Economics Committee.
Will serves his community as a Councilman for the Town of Eagle. He has also been on the Town Zoning Board. Louise is a Trustee for the Bliss Library and involved in supporting the National Honor Society at Pioneer Central School. Their whole family is actively involved many aspects of their local church community.
If the Herricks aren’t hosting a youth practice activity at their home, they are providing or organizing rides for children in their community to participate in contests to grow their knowledge and instill passion for agriculture. Will and Louise are serious about showing young people the opportunities in agriculture that abound in Wyoming County.
Thank you Louise and Will for your dedicated support of agriculture and the efforts you make to develop future leaders for agriculture in our community. Cornell Cooperative Extension of Wyoming County and Wyoming County Farm Bureau congratulate you for your knowledge, generosity and forward thinking approach to leadership in agriculture, your local community and Wyoming County.
