Governor's Outstanding Legacy in Agriculture Award Presented Posthumously to Quintus Herron

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 16:00:00 CDT

Governorís Outstanding Legacy in Agriculture Award Presented Posthumously to Quintus Herron The Governor's Outstanding Legacy in Agriculture Award was presented posthumously to Quintus Herron of Idabel. He was a professional forester, successful businessman and generous philanthropist who dedicated his 70-year career to transforming the timber industry in southeastern Oklahoma, sharing what he learned with other landowners and giving back to the community in the form of education, cultural heritage and environmental improvements. His family business, Herron Industries, was innovative in the area for growing trees as a crop.



Herron helped lead the way in applying modern forestry practices on private lands. He followed best management practices to protect water quality and assure rapid reforestation after harvest. As a result, Herron forests have generated income for nearly sixty years.



Local communities continue to benefit from the McCurtain Community Fund and the Herron Foundation which provides matching funds for community improvement projects. Herron's vision helped create the Oklahoma Forest Heritage Center and the Museum of the Red River. Both entities help people learn about Oklahoma's history and other cultures.



Herron was well-known for saying, "If you want to get something done, just get started and you are half way there."
