During the 42nd Annual Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute, the Nebraska Agricultural Youth Council presented its highest honor, the NAYI Award of Merit, to Duane Jewell.
“The NAYI Award of Merit is presented each year to someone with a strong commitment to youth and a dedication to the betterment of the agricultural industry,” said NAYC Advisor Christin Kamm. “This year the award was given to an individual who has a long history with the Institute and is a great supporter of the program.”
For the past 37 years, Duane Jewell has coordinated the annual farm management program at the NAYI. More than 5,000 youth have participated in the program in those years, and taken away valuable information about how to make farm management decisions. Jewell is a native of Albion and received his bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He spent five years as a Nebraska-Lincoln agricultural economics staff member before moving to Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Mo.
Jewell resides in the Kansas City, Mo., area with his wife. The couple has two grown children.
