Ninety-six-year-old Margie Jenkins is the first woman inducted into the Louisiana Agriculture Hall of Distinction. Governor John Bel Edwards says the Jenkins Farm and Nursery in Amite has been a staple in Tangipahoa Parish since 1960.
"And she is a real fixture in that industry and I'm so glad they are recognizing her," said Edwards.
Jenkins' career in agriculture spans 80 years. She and her late husband, Bryant, moved to Tangipahoa Parish in 1951 and planted a small watermelon field.
