Minor named Wisconsin Farm Bureau Hero of Hope
For the Hub City Times
MADISON – Pittsville’s Jerry Minor has been named Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Hero of Hope in the organization’s second annual Heroes of Hope campaign.
Heroes of Hope, a subset of the #FarmNeighborsCare campaign, is focused on shedding light on rural heroes who have helped others through a tough time.
Heroes of Hope aims to identify people who have helped bring hope to farmers or businesses, either in large or small ways. Members of the agriculture community were encouraged to nominate individuals who have made an impact on the way they conduct business, both ordinarily and extraordinarily.
Minor is the Pittsville Fire Company chief. He has played a significant role in creating a partnership with the National Farm Medicine Center and is committed to equipping rural Wisconsin firefighters with proper training and equipment to properly respond to rural emergencies. Minor has also partnered with area farmers to host hands-on training demonstrations and is a strong advocate for youth fire safety education.
Also being recognized as finalists this year are Sara Byl of Polk County, Gretchen Kamps of Lafayette County, Randy Roecker of Sauk County and Brenda Statz of Sauk County.
