The Mid America CropLife Association (MACA) presented several awards at its recent annual meeting in Kansas City, Missouri.

MACA President Matt Ewers presented the Association's most coveted award - the Dean Roy Achievement Award - named in honor of one of the organization's founders, for "Exceptional Service to MACA and the CropLife Industry" for contributing the most by their selfless service.

The 2017 recipient winner is Lindsey Jackson, Dow AgroSciences. Ewers cited Jackson's service to the association where she has served on the Distribution & Environment Committee, and as the committee chair for the past two years, plus is a CropLife Ambassador Network speaker.

Under Jackson's leadership, the Distribution & Environment Committee has updated the Hazardous Materials Training Videos, modified the Warehouse Survey so that it is more user friendly, plus she has enhanced committee meetings by bringing in speakers to each quarterly meeting, used WebEx for speakers and committee members who are unable to attend the meetings in person, and identified other topics of interest for the committee.

Most recently, the committee is developing a Waste Management seminar to provide industry guidance to better assist with the constant struggle surrounding disposal of unsaleable pesticide product in distribution. She's also found time to volunteer as an ambassador and make presentations to elementary students on the importance of agriculture and crop protection products.

Currently, Jackson works for Dow AgroSciences and lives in the Indianapolis, Indiana area.

"Jackson is committed to the crop protection industry and works for its betterment through MACA," stated Ewers. "She understands the crop protection industry and works to make sure that products are stored, transported and handled safely."

"Jackson is involved in looking for ideas and solutions, but works closely with the D&E Committee to encourage participation in MACA from members. She welcomes members and makes them feel needed," concluded Ewers. "Lindsey Jackson is an integral part of MACA by leading and gathering input on issues of concern and works to provide answers to their concerns."

Jackson is the 35th person to receive the Dean Roy Achievement Award.
