A young man who worked 20 hours a week in the Russell Stover Candy factory and spent most weekends helping his father on the farm while attending college, is our next recipient of the Nebraska Agribusiness Club's Public Service to Agriculture Award. He is Dayle E. Williamson, a native of Fillmore County, graduate of Ohiowa High School and the University of Nebraska in General Agriculture, who planned to be a farmer. He served in the U.S. Army, joined the Nebraska National Guard, and was employed as a University Extension agent in Gage and Jefferson counties. Then Dayle embarked on what became his life's profession upon being named Assistant Executive Secretary of the Nebraska Soil and Water Conservation Commission in 1958.
