The Ohio Agricultural Council (OAC) recently announced the 2016 Ohio Agricultural Hall of Fame inductees, including John C. (Jack) Fisher of Columbus, J. Richard (Dick) Isler of Delaware, Dr. Keith Smith of Hilliard, and Timothy White of Lancaster. These individuals — who have committed their lives to working in, promoting and advocating for Ohio’s farm community — will be inducted as the 51st class on Friday, Aug. 5, 2016, during a special breakfast ceremony at the Ohio Expo Center.
“Our Board is extraordinarily pleased to be honoring such an outstanding group of inductees into this year’s class,” said Jim Chakeres, OAC president. “Each inductee stands out individually for his exceptional contributions to Ohio agriculture, but together they represent the passion, creativity and hard work evidenced by their collective decades of unmatched experience.”
Induction will take place in the all-new Cardinal Hall on the fairgrounds, which will feature an expanded Hall of Fame display and salute to Ohio’s agriculture community.
