SCOTT AND Susan Matthews of Weiner, Ark., Reese and Allison Pillow of Greenwood, Miss., Jay Schutte of Benton City, Mo., and Ben and Jennifer Moore of Dresden, Tenn., have been named 2004 Young Leaders under a program sponsored by the American Soybean Association and Pioneer, a DuPont Company.

The Mid-South leaders joined representatives from 19 other states and Canada in the weeklong program that targets soybean farmers who are “innovative, assertive, young in leadership and looking to make their mark in agriculture.”

Now entering its 21st year, the program has a record of success. Hundreds of program alumni have assumed significant leadership responsibilities in state and national soybean associations, promotion boards, and national, regional, and state agricultural organizations.
