A special presentation was held during the Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation District (OFSWCD) Area 5 Winter meeting on Dec. 1, 2021 to honor board member Larry Shannon as the Supervisor of the Year as he prepares to retire from his duties at the end of 2021.

In 1995, Shanon began his conservation crusade by becoming a supervisor on the Highland SWCD Board among fellow board members Craig Adams, Tom Pulse, Paul Cockerill and Bob Garmin. He quickly stepped into the executive role, serving as the vice chairman for 16 years. He has spent the last seven years of his career by being the chairman of the board of supervisors, which added an element of respect and guidance to his plate.

Shannon has served 27 years on the board and has devoted much of his time and knowledge to support the SWCD programs. Even though his leadership will be missed, the supervisors and staff would like to thank Shannon for his outstanding tenure on the board.
