Agricultural Retailers Association Recognizes John Oster with Distinguished Service Award

The Agricultural Retailers Association leadership recognized John Oster of Morral Companies with the ARA Distinguished Service Award for his support of the association and the agricultural retail industry.

“Receiving this recognition is one of the high points of a long career in this business. I couldn’t be prouder of an award than I am of this one.”

said Oster.

Oster served on the ARA Board of Directors from 2013 through 2019, entering the officer rotation in 2016, and finally serving as Chairman of the Board in 2018.

“John has always been the biggest supporter and recruiter for membership in ARA. His support of membership recruitment has continued beyond his time in ARA leadership roles and is the main reason he was selected for this award. Of course, his contributions to the ag retail industry reach beyond ARA, as he is also an active supporter of the Ohio Agribusiness Association.”

said ARA President and CEO Daren Coppock.

Selected by the ARA Executive Committee, the ARA Distinguished Service Award honors individual members of the association who have gone above and beyond the traditional volunteer responsibilities.
