Hall of Fame

The Wisconsin Green Industry Federation Hall of Fame came to fruition under the leadership of WGIF Past Presidents Jeff Edgar (1995-96) and Lou Wierichs (1997-98), along with a special committee headed by Ralph Gerber.  The purpose of the WGIF Hall of Fame is to honor those individuals and their achievements which have helped make the Wisconsin Green industry what it is today. 

Each nomination is considered by the Hall of Fame Selection Committee, made up of at least one representative from each of WGIF's member associations.  Deceased individuals and non-members of WGIF may also be nominated.

Each Hall of Fame member, or surviving family member, is presented with a plaque, including a photo of the inductee and a listing of their achievements.   

THE WGIF HALL OF FAME WILL INDUCT RANDY JASPERSON AND ED KNAPTON FOR 2018!  Attend the Hall of Fame Award presentation at the Spring Spectacular March 17th.  Registration Form
