KyCorn executive director Laura Knoth (left) and incoming president Joseph Sisk (right) honored past president Richard Preston for his service at the Kentucky Corn Growers Association Annual Meeting on January 13. Preston, who has served as KyCGA President for the past three years, has served on the Board of Directors for both District 4 and the Lincoln Trail Area since 2010. He will continue to serve members with appointments on the National Corn Growers Association Risk Management and Transportation Action Team (as vice chairman), as well as the NCGA Resolutions and Nominating Committees.
Members and colleagues also thanked KyCorn board members Chris Pierce (Science Hill) and Bob Wade, Jr. (Sonora) for their leadership and service to the organization. Pierce has served as a KyCGA board member since 2013, and this was Wade’s second tenure on the board of directors, where the past president (1997-2000) has dedicated nearly 20 years to Kentucky’s corn farmers.
