A fund raising drive for establishing a mentor recognition fund in the name of R.C. Pollock was started in December, 2006. As President of the National Live Stock and Meat Board, R. C. Pollock was instrumental in the founding of the Reciprocal Meat Conference and the American Meat Science Association.
The funds raised from the mentor recognition are used to endow the AMSA R.C. Pollock Award, the highest honor that AMSA bestows..
The fund raising goal for this mentorship ($15,000) was met in 2009. Additional donations to the fund continue to be accepted . If you would like to help recognize R.C. Pollock by contributing to the mentor fund, make a donation online or contact AMSA Executive Director Thomas Powell (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
