BOONSBORO — The Washington County Agricultural Education Center Board of Directors held a naming ceremony for the AC&T Arena on July 26, honoring Adna Fulton and his family.

The ceremony recognized Fulton for his generous financial contributions to the ag center and his longtime support of Washington County agriculture.

During the ceremony, Robbie Shaw of Fairplay spoke on behalf of the ag center, highlighting Fulton’s personal and professional life.

Fulton, with his wife, Janet, by his side, praised the 4-H program, the youth involved in agriculture, and encouraged adults to continue their support. He also spoke of his sons and their dedicated involvement in the family business.

Ron Shifler, president of the ag center board of directors, presented commemorative plaques to the Fulton family.


Attendees of the dedication included friends and family of the Fultons, the Washington County Board of Commissioners, Del. John Donoghue, Del. LeRoy Myers Jr. and Blaine Young, president of Frederick County Commissioners.

In addition, members of the board of directors for the ag center and Rural Heritage Museum, ag center staff and other supporters of the agriculture community attended.
