Dixie Watts Reaves and David M. Kohl Honored

By Gordon Groover (, Extension Economist, Farm Management, Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, Virginia Tech

I had to stop the presses or nowadays stop the electrons to inform our readers that both Dixie Watts Reaves and David M. Kohl received the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Distinguished Service to Agriculture Award. The awards were presented at the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention on December 2, 2008. Both Dixie and Dave were honored for their dedicated service in and outside of the classroom. Please join me in congratulating them. See the detailed press release at:
