At the 2018 Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) Convention this week, Billy and Bob Willard were honored with the ARA Distinguished Service Award for their support for ARA and the agricultural retail industry.

“Willard Agri-Service is the gold standard for ag retailers,” said ARA President and CEO Daren Coppock, who presented the award which honors individual members of the association who have provided support above and beyond that of the traditional member and volunteer responsibilities.

Billy, who serves as CEO for Willard Agri-Service, was unable to attend the ARA Convention this week so his father and company founder De Willard accepted the award for him with Bob, past chairman of ARA and chairman of the Willard Agri-Service Board of Directors.
