American Coalition for Ethanol President’s Award

Cindy Zimmerman

The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) President’s Award was a family affair this year.

ACE President Lars Herseth, a South Dakota farmer and rancher, was honored to present the award this year to his daughter and former Congresswoman Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin. Three generations of Herseths are pictured here – Lars, Stephanie and her son Zachery – who is absolutely adorable.

It was a great pleasure to meet this distinguished and talented woman who is very proud of her agricultural heritage and was a great advocate for farmers and ranchers and the ethanol industry while serving in Congress from 2004 to 2011. It was an even greater pleasure to find out that she has taken a position as general counsel with Raven Industries, the sponsor of our AgWired app!

“Growing up on my family’s farm has defined me,” Stephanie told me. “One of the key reasons that I took the opportunity to join Raven Industries was to be home full time and to raise Zachery closer to family where he can spend time on the farm and have that same experience.”
