Bill Latham Receives "Industry Service" Award
Bill Latham was honored with the Industry Service Award yesterday at the annual Independent Professional Seed Association (IPSA) Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. The award was presented by Skype. (How’s that for our industry embracing innovation and technological advancement?)
The IPSA also presented Bill – a die-hard Iowa State fan – with an ISU Cyclones ball signed by Iowa State University’s football coach, Paul Rhoads; men’s basketball coach, Greg McDermott; athletic director, Jamie Pollard; and women’s basketball coach, Bill Fennelly.
Bill, we’re so proud of your accomplishments and your dedication to our industry. Congratulations on IPSA’s recognition!
