Richard Popp Memorial Leadership Award – Maureen Torrey-Marshall of Torrey Farms
Richard “Dick” Popp was a founding member of NEDPA and a passionate man of integrity, grit and conviction. Following his death in 1997 at only 58 years of age, NEDPA established a memorial award to recognize members who portray Dick’s leadership qualities, pioneering spirit, and selfless contributions to agriculture and their community.
NEDPA is honoring Maureen Torrey Marshall as the 2020 recipient of the Richard Popp Memorial Leadership Award. Maureen’s passion for agriculture, her persistence in advocating on its behalf, and her leadership in collaborating, fostering teamwork and empowering her peers has had an impact all farm businesses.
