Editorial: Grand champion fair status grows

The Jackson County Fair received a grand champion designation in its class six times between 1990 and 1999 from the Indiana Association of Fairs.

Those honors are a testament to the work of a small, but dedicated group — the fair board, which now has 30 members — and many others over the years.

Some faces on the fair board have changed over time, although others, such as Marion Reinbold, Melvin Bishop, Jeanette Hackman, Nancy Erp, Fleeta Arthur, Myron Curry, Jim Browning and Francis Elliott, to name just a few, date back to the 1990s when the grand champion awards were won.
