Bozeman, Mont. | The American Agri-Women (AAW) honored Jacqueline Compston of Minden, Nevada, with the Erickson-McCrum Outstanding Agricultural Mentor Award at its 2022 National Convention held recently in Bozeman, Montana. The mentoring award was started in 2017 to honor two outstanding mentors and AAW past presidents, Yvonne Erickson and Sue McCrum. This annual award recognizes those AAW members who go above and beyond to mentor others in agriculture. This award is not a leadership or advocacy award. Individuals are not being rewarded or recognized for positions they have held, initiatives they have worked on, or advocacy they have advanced unless it is precisely in the realm of mentoring. The award is to recognize people who have provided extraordinary mentoring. AAW members who go out of their way to truly mentor and coach people in agriculture positively. They are integral to developing leaders who take on demanding roles in our agricultural organizations, businesses, and communities.
The award consists of a plague to the recipient and a monetary donation toward AAW leadership or mentoring activities to honor each recipient.
