Don McGough was presented the project’s annual Award of Excellence award. This honor is given in recognition of an individual or organization that has contributed to improving the quality of life of farmers and their families in the State of Georgia.

The 2015 Award of Excellence was given to Andy Carter, Dewayne Dales and Cathy Walters. These individuals were part of the original group that helped start the AgrAbility project in Georgia. Their devotion and dedication has helped numerous farmers in Georgia.

"Andy, Dewayne and Cathy were instrumental in the success of the project. Without their assistance we would not be where we are today," said Rebecca Brightwell, Co-Director the Farm Again project.
