1993 Willis H. Hayes

Wilbraham, Massachusetts

As the final decades of the 20th century presented us with significant challenges for the farmers of New England, this former teacher of vocational agriculture and retired Vice President and Secretary of the Farm Credit Banks of Springfield worked steadfastly to maintain a strong agricultural presence at Eastern States Exposition. His long tenure as Eastern States Exposition President heralded a new era of diverse and dynamic livestock programs aimed at educating the public on the importance of our farmers and their products. He has a vast knowledge and appreciation of New England agriculture and its people. His community leadership is legendary and he is a long time champion of education and programs for the elderly.
