WACO -- Melvin John Grones was recognized as the District 12 Texas Farm Bureau Pioneer Award winner at the 77th Texas Farm Bureau annual meeting Dec. 5, according to a Dec. 5 Texas Farm Bureau press release.

Since joining the Guadalupe County Farm Bureau more than 20 years ago, Grones energizes the local organization and constantly encourages its growth in membership, programs, and purpose. In addition to serving several years as board president and vice president, he continues to be one of the county’s strongest recruiters.

He also has led Guadalupe County Farm Bureau in implementing several local programs, including Food Check-Out Week and Program of Work, to benefit the community and Farm Bureau members. When the local Guadalupe County Farm Bureau office was destroyed by a fire, Grones took on the role of project officer to lead the rebuilding effort and get the office back in business without delay.

Grones provides input for a variety of community organizations and regularly volunteers at the local pecan museum. One of his greatest contributions was helping establish the Texas Agriculture Education and Heritage Center, where 2,000 students attend an Ag Awareness Fair each October.

The Texas Farm Bureau’s Pioneer Award honors one outstanding Texas farmer or rancher in each of the organization’s 13 state districts, as well as one staff member. Winners are chosen annually by a panel of their peers for their exceptional contributions to agriculture and Texas Farm Bureau.
