Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North Florida) has been presented with the Hall of Fame award by the University of Florida/Institute of Food and Agriculture Science North Florida Research and Education Center for his 12 years of service to the advancement of science and agriculture in North Florida.
The award was presented by NFREC Director, Dr. Nick Comerford, last week at the Quincy NFREC. Boyd was in Quincy for his forum on HAZMAT issues for local farmers.
“I was extremely surprised and honored to receive this award from the IFAS North Florida Research and Education Center,” said Boyd. “As many know, agriculture is near and dear to my heart – to this day, my family and I farm the same land that has been in our family for five generations.
“Throughout my service in Congress, I have worked to develop policy that supports our agriculture producers and enables them to continue to provide our country, and the world, with the highest quality, safest, and most reliable food supply. I will continue to do so, and I want to thank the IFAS North Florida Research and Education Center for this special award and for the important work that they do.”
