Jaime Yanes Receives MACA’s Dean Roy Achievement Award

The Mid America CropLife Association (MACA) presented several awards at its recent virtual annual meeting.

MACA President Tim Riley presented the Association’s most coveted award, the Dean Roy Achievement Award, to Jaime Yanes, Albaugh, LLC. The award is named in honor of one of the organization’s founders, for “Exceptional Service to MACA and the CropLife Industry,” for their contributions of selfless service. Riley cited Yanes’ service to the association where he has served as a member of the Industry Communications committee and in 2017 became a co-chair of the Young Leader Scholarship Program (YLSP); he’s also served on the Executive Committee since 2018, made presentations to school children as a member of the CropLife Ambassador Network, worked to recruit members and assisted with plans for the 2020 annual meeting held virtually.

Yanes has recruited YSLP candidates, served as a host and mentor to YLSP recipients, new members, and attendees at quarterly meetings. He’s committed to the crop protection industry by volunteering to assist with projects and programs which will benefit the MACA members. No matter the request, if Jaime says he’ll do it, it gets done.

“Jaime is dedicated to MACA. He assists whenever needed as long as it is for the good of MACA and the crop protection industry,” stated Riley. “Having worked in the crop protection industry for many years, he volunteers and gets the job done with a smile on his face.”

Jaime Yanes is the 39th person to receive the Dean Roy Achievement Award.
