Nominations Sought for the Florida Citrus Hall of Fame

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018 by tamara

Bartow, Fla. (Sept. 18, 2018) — Nominations are now being sought for potential inductees to The Florida Citrus Hall of Fame, with induction ceremonies scheduled to take place on Friday, March 8, 2019 at Florida Southern College in Lakeland. The luncheon is co-sponsored by Florida Citrus Mutual and the Florida Department of Citrus.

The mission of the Hall of Fame is to recognize those distinguished leaders that have made significant contributions to the industry and to preserve and share the rich heritage of Florida citrus. Eligible nominees for the Hall of Fame are those distinguished leaders who have made significant contributions to the Florida citrus industry in any of the following fields: pioneers, harvesting, packing, processing, marketing, scientific and/or educational areas.

Last year’s inductees were L. Gene Albrigo, of Daytona Shores, Fla., and Marvin D. Kahn, of Sebring, Fla. Anyone may nominate or re-nominate their choice for the Florida Citrus Hall of Fame. Because of the limited number who may be inducted each year, the Hall of Fame encourages interested parties to resubmit candidates that may have been nominated in previous years, but not selected at that time.

The deadline for nominations is November 1st and all nominations should include a summary of the nominee’s accomplishments, letters of support from industry members and a photo. Any nominations received after this date will be considered for the following year. Nomination forms are available by contacting Brenda Eubanks Burnette at (561) 351-4314, BBurne1003@aol.com or by visiting the Florida Citrus Hall of Fame web site at www.FloridaCitrusHallofFame.com .

Completed applications must include a photo and should be e-mailed to BBurne1003@aol.com. Hard copies should be sent to Florida Citrus Hall of Fame, 2506 Gardens Parkway, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410.

For more information, please contact Brenda Eubanks Burnette at (561) 351-4314 or BBurne1003@aol.com.
