When the Angus Heritage Foundation was established in 1983, the American Angus Association described the purpose as, "An incalculable debt to the many men and women who, for more than a century, have worked tirelessly and selflessly to make Angus cattle and the American Angus Association the leaders in the beef cattle world."
The tradition continues as five new members join the ranks this year.
The 2011 inductees include Jerome "Jerry" Helgren, Lake Villa, Ill.; Anne Patton Schubert, Taylorsville, Ky.; Walter "Cecil" and Sandra McCurry, Mount Hope, Kan.; and Gary Dameron, Lexington, Ill. Lucile Rheude Patton, formerly of Earl Park, Ind., was inducted posthumously.
Inductees were recognized during the American Angus Association's Annual Awards Banquet on Nov. 14, in Louisville, Ky. Each inductee or a family representative received a framed Angus Heritage Foundation certificate, and all names will be permanently engraved on the Heritage Foundation plaque displayed in the library of the Association headquarters in Saint Joseph, Mo.
