The first president of CanACT — Canadian Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow — was Jenn Dick, one of the most enthusiastic Ontario Agricultural College Aggies you could ever expect to meet. Jenn, who was also a very productive SPARK writer, returned to Renfrew when she graduated to work on her family farm…and if you open this week's Ontario Farmer, she's featured in numerous awards photos on page B15, as part of the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association. It's a pretty active group, by the looks of all the awards Jenn and association president Bob Dick are either presenting, or her husband Michael is receiving. Way to go, Jenn!
