Dick Turner Memorial Award
The Dick Turner Memorial Award was established after the passing of legendary Angus icon Dick Turner in July of 2010.

It was Dick’s ability to foster relationships and boundless enthusiasm that led to his successful tenure. He believed that “information is power” and was best shared with all stakeholders. Dick was a hard worker and recognized the quality of life and relationships as the most rewarding part of his job. The deadline to apply is May 15.
