Extension Educator honored today at Dry Bean Day

Posted: Updated:

The Nebraska Dry Bean Growers Association took time to remember a panhandle educator who passed away this summer.

Dean Yonts worked at the Panhandle Extension Center for 37 years, dealing with water management and irrigation. He also served as ex-officio for the NDBGA.

Board member Jerry Mackie presented a plaque to the Yonts family in memory in Dean, and all he did for the dry bean industry.

"Dean was best known for being a team player, and going the extra mile and making the extra effort," said Mackie.

Yonts passed away unexpectedly last July.
