Agri Marketing magazine reports:

FarmHouse International Fraternity will award Sonny Beck, President of Beck's, with the Fraternity's highest honor, the title of Master Builder of Men.

Sonny is one of six individuals who will receive the honor in July 2014.

The award was started in 1950 by the National FarmHouse Executive Board and is presented to an alumni member who is dedicated to helping others.

Sonny's dedication and passion for agriculture extends far beyond Beck's. He is a founding member of the Purdue FarmHouse Fraternity Foundation Board. In July 2013, he was appointed as a trustee on the Purdue University Board of Trustees.

Growing up with a passion for agriculture, Sonny has led Beck's to unprecedented growth over the last two decades, becoming the largest family-owned, retail seed company in the United States.

Over the years Sonny has given countless hours of service to the agriculture industry. His involvement comes from the heart and a true passion for the success of American agriculture.

Others being honored are:

*Jud Ammons, Ammons Enterprises, Raleigh, NC,

*Dr. Wilbur Faye, Univ of Kentucky, Richmond, KY,

*Art Heggen, Assurant Solutions, Sunny Isle Beach, FL,

*Dr. Loys Mather, Univ of Kentucky, Lexington, KY,

*Dr. Melvin Serwin, one of the founding fathers of the fraternity.

The awards will be presented at FarmHouse's 48th Biennial Conclave July 23-27, Charlotte, NC.
