The R. O. Meek Award was established in 2016. Named after the first recorded agriculture teacher at Wetumpka's Fifth District Agriculture School, this award honors a student who has shown true dedication to the Wetumpka Agricultural Program. This student has gone above and beyond and strives to promote and advocate for agriculture. 2019 was the first year the R. O. Meek was a monetary award. R. O. Meek Award will be presented at the 2021 Wetumpka FFA Alumni Championship Rodeo.
