In memoriam: J.D. Foust, 1927-2014

North Carolina lost a major champion of beekeeping with the September 2 death of John David Foust, known to most as “J.D.”  He and his wife Betty Jean contributed much to the development of beekeeping chapters and the state beekeeping organization, and were instrumental in the development of the Apiculture Program at NCSU.  Read more about J.D. in this month’s newsletter and his obituary.  We were very fortunate to have had his service in this state, and he will be fondly remembered and greatly missed!
