Scholarships / Special Awards

Edsel Rowan Award

  • The Edsel Rowan Trophy, which has been presented at the Lamb Show since its inception in 1987, will again be presented by the Ocala/Marion Country Chamber of commerce to the Market Lamb Exhibitor whose Iamb has achieved the highest weight gain. This trophy was named in honor of long time Marion County Extension Agent, Edsel Rowan. Mr. Rowan’s career as an agent was filled with long hours, hard work, and a genuine desire to help the people of Marion County. He was known statewide for his expertise in the production of important Florida crops. He is credited for ensuring the establishment of the Thoroughbred Horse industry in Marion Country, his knowledge and assistance in developing pasture grasses suitable for horses in Florida’s climate. Mr. Rowan received many awards for his remarkable dedication to serving the agricultural industries in Florida. However, through all the years, his first love was the youth of Marion County. He loved to watch kids achieve and be recognized for their work. Upon his retirement in 1982, the Southeastern Livestock Pavilion and the Agricultural Center Complex was renamed the Rowan Agricultural Complex in honor of his 31 plus years of dedicated service.
