Friday, March 3, 2017, Mark Simmons joined four other leaders inducted into the Arkansas Agriculture Hall of Fame during a luncheon in Little Rock, Arkansas.

With these additions, the hall of fame now includes 158 members since its inception in 1987, acknowledging key figures in one of the state's leading industries. 

In an interview with the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Mark commented, "While this is an honor that is being given to me, it is really deserved by the people of Simmons who've made our organization a great place to work. My family, my wife, our employees -- all of them deserve this honor more than I do."
