Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
Sherry Sanders and Michael “Sam” Skaggs were recently named the 2018 Master Conservationists for Edmonson County. The Master Conservationist Award recognizes farmers who have completed more than 90 percent of their conservation plan to protect the soil, air, and water on their farm, which also protects the environment of their community.
The Edmonson County Conservation District would like to congratulate both Ms. Sanders and Mr. Skaggs for their achievements. Ms. Sanders and Mr. Skaggs were awarded a certificate, a sign for their farms, and plaques commemorating the event.
Their certificates read, in part: "In recognition of the love they have shown for the land by using it properly and establishing the necessary conservation practices for maintaining the fertility and increasing the productivity of their farms. They have proven themselves to be good stewards by preserving their farms for generations to come. It is in recognition of an important task well performed that they and their families are awarded this testimonial of honor."
