2018 Special Award
As the committee of previous winners of the shepherd of the year award started talking about this years Shepherd of the Year – a clear winner was evident. But there was something more we needed to do.
We all agreed – without hesitation.
A Distinguished Service Award was once again in order.
We’ve only ever given one of these awards before in the history of the Association.
This was important to us – this was something that was good, and right, and deserved.
All of us should take a minute to really appreciate all he has done for the sheep industry not only in our county and our state but beyond those borders.
Peter Vorac led this organization for a decade and was an active member long before taking the job of President. He has opened doors for sheep producers and asked hard questions of those that our industry depends on. He has taken time to inspire youth through mentoring and has done a tremendous job in raising winning show stock as well as exceptional breeding stock.
So, thank you Peter, for being a leader of not only our Association but also a leader in the Sheep Industry.
You truly exemplify the meaning of Distinguished Service.
