A local man has brought a 2012 Medal of Honor home all the way from Poland.
Dr. Jim Mazurkiewicz of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension was given the Medal of Honor from the Polish Marshal for his work in Ag Business in Poland.
Mazurkiewicz said the honor came as a result of a strong relationship that has developed government, corporate, academic and agriculture producer leadership in Poland.
He has led agricultural leaders on several discovery trips to the country since 2002. He has worked with the AgriLife Extension for 35 years and is the director of Texas Agriculture Lifetime Leadership.
