AG ALUMNI HONOR FIVE: Hall of Honor, Pioneer Awards

Five men who have made major contributions to Alabama agriculture and agribusiness were honored recently by the Auburn University Ag Alumni Association during the association’s annual Hall of Honor ceremony. Three individuals — Ronnie B. Holladay of Trickem, who was chosen for his work in the production agriculture category; Richard L. Guthrie of Auburn, the education/government award winner; and Wyeth Holt (Chuck) Speir, Jr., of Daphne, winner in the agribusiness category — were inducted into the Hall of Honor, which recognizes living Alabamians for their contributions to Alabama agriculture. Also during the ceremonies, the association presented its 2009 Pioneer Awards, which are presented posthumously to Alabama agriculture leaders, to the late Samuel H. Booker and Ralph W. Martin, Jr. Pictured at the ceremony are (from left) Holladay, Guthrie, Speir and Ag Alumni President Jim Tollison.
