BISMARCK – Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring has named Travis Jepson as the recipient of the 2024 Weed Control Partner Award.
Jepson has been the full-time weed officer for the Stark County Weed Board for the past 15 years and worked part time the 2 years prior. He is a past president of the North Dakota Weed Control Association and earned their Weed Warrior Award in 2019.
“Travis helped develop and worked with the Dickinson City Weed Board to implement an effective program,” Goehring said. “He is very involved with his program and makes sure it positively impacts landowners in his county.”
“Travis is a great communicator and puts people at ease,” Goehring added. “He encourages teamwork by working jointly with landowners, other weed boards and the North Dakota Department of Agriculture.”
