Floyd Charley was born on a cattle ranch near Brownsboro, Oregon in 1892. In 1936 he founded the first 4-H beef club in Jackson County. He was said to have had the voice of reason to help everyone see both sides of an issue. This as well as his quiet way of getting things done gained him the nickname of “The Peacemaker”.
The Floyd Charley Peacemaker Award is one award in the amount of $500. As members of the beef project, this award is designed to recognize a member of the 4-H or FFA beef program who shows characteristics of good citizenship, willingness to help others and being a “Peacemaker”. The Charley family will select the winner of this award.
