Madison County Farm Bureau honors former assemblyman


MORRISVILLE — In honor of the late Assemblyman William (Bill) Magee, the Madison County Farm Bureau presented a donation of $1,000 to the Morrisville College Foundation to be used for the Magee Scholarship Fund.

The Magee Scholarship Fund at Morrisville College, originally initiated by Magee, is used to offer scholarships to students studying to enter the agriculture field.

“Bill was a never-ending farming advocate for Madison County and all of New York State Agriculture,” said Shawn Bossard, president of Madison County Farm Bureau. “The loss of Bill will be felt for a long time and it is fitting that we honor him by helping students who are studying to enter into an industry that he was most passionate about.”

Anyone wishing to contribute to the Magee Scholarship Fund at Morrisville College to support students studying to enter the agriculture industry can go to and specify that the contribution is to go toward the Magee Scholarship Fund in the “Additional Comments” section of the form.
