Mississippi cotton producer/ginner Kenneth Hood is the recipient of the 2007 Harry S. Baker Distinguished Service Award. He was recognized at the National Cotton Council's 2008 Annual Meeting held here on February 7-11.

The Baker Award, named for the late California industry leader and NCC President Harry S. Baker, is presented annually to a deserving individual who has provided extraordinary service, leadership and dedication to the U.S. cotton industry.

Outgoing NCC Chairman John Pucheu said Hood, like Harry S. Baker, has given freely of his time, and through uncommon leadership, has provided distinguished and invaluable service to the U.S. cotton industry.

Since 1962, Hood has been a partner in Perthshire Farms, a 12,000 acre cotton, soybean, peanut, grain sorghum and wheat operation in the Mississippi Delta community of Gunnison. He also is involved in H.B. Hood and Sons Gins, Hood Equipment Co., and InTime Inc., an aerial imagery-based precision farming service.

Reaching well beyond his operations, Hood's resume is a profile of exceptional leadership and dedicated service to agriculture. He was NCC chairman in 2002, and is a past president of the National Cotton Ginners Association, Southern Cotton Ginners Association and the Delta Council.

Others also have acknowledged Kenneth Hood's outstanding leadership qualities. In 1988, he received Cotton Farming Magazine's Farmer of the Year award. The New York Cotton Exchange named him the Cotton Marketer of the Year in 1992.
