The Eldon Rice Spirit of Community Award

Eldon Rice’s imprint on Northern Rosebud County is a lasting one.  He arrived to the area as a fresh college graduate from Montana State University in the early 60’s and began his long tenure of service as the Rosebud County Extension Agent.  For over 55 years he served on many boards and worked tirelessly on community projects.  One of the last included the Foundation’s board of directors. He strongly believed in the vision of the Foundation; working a strategic plan to accomplish short-term and long-term goals locally.

This annual award was established to honor his legacy of life-long community service.  The award recognizes those who demonstrate their love of community through volunteering and service.  The recipient is chosen by the Foundation and is awarded $1,000 to be given to the service organization or project of their choice.
