Agricultural Retailers Association Recognizes John Oster with Distinguished Service Award
Dec 02 2020
Today the Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) leadership recognized John Oster of Morral Companies with the ARA Distinguished Service Award for his support of the association and the agricultural retail industry.
“Receiving this recognition is one of the high points of a long career in this business,” said Oster. “I couldn’t be prouder of an award than I am of this one.”
Oster served on the ARA Board of Directors from 2013 through 2019, entering the officer rotation in 2016, and finally serving as Chairman of the Board in 2018.
“John has always been the biggest supporter and recruiter for membership in ARA,” said ARA President and CEO Daren Coppock. “His support of membership recruitment has continued beyond his time in ARA leadership roles and is the main reason he was selected for this award. Of course, his contributions to the ag retail industry reach beyond ARA, as he is also an active supporter of the Ohio Agribusiness Association.”
Selected by the ARA Executive Committee, the ARA Distinguished Service Award honors individual members of the association who have gone above and beyond the traditional volunteer responsibilities.
