Sugar industry leaders honored

93-year-old J. B. Falgoust was recognized with a lifetime achievement award for his “exceptional contributions in farming and finance for the sugarcane industry.” Because of COVID-19 restriction, Falgoust did not attend, and the honor was received by his sons, Mike and Chuck Falgoust.
