County of Wetaskiwin ag services director receives rare AAAF award

Association of Alberta Agricultural Fieldman Merit Award issued only twice previously

County of Wetaskiwin director of agricultural services Stephan Majek was recently rewarded with a prestigious industry award.

Majek has been recognized with the Association of Alberta Agricultural Fieldman (AAAF) Merit Award, for 17 years of service as the organization’s secretary/treasurer.

“It’s a pretty prestigious award. It’s only been issued twice before,” said assistant CAO Rod Hawken.

Majek says if it had not been for the support of the county and council since his employment, dating back to May 3, 1999, he would not have been in a position to be so involved with AAAF.

“I would like to say thank you to two things, council … and our administration,” said Majek.

“It’s for people that go above and beyond in the organization,” he added, referring to the esteemed award.
