Owen Jones (L) receives award from ACE past president Lars Herseth

The first Merle Anderson award presented by the American Coalition for Ethanol after the passing of its founder was one of Merle’s good friends, Owen Jones.

“Merle Anderson was my mentor,” said Jones as he accepted the award from past ACE president Lars Herseth. “I am truly humbled.”

Jones is a farmer first, and became interested in ethanol as an alternative fuel during the oil embargo years. “I was concerned about fuel supply and wondered what we could be doing about it.”
