AUGUSTA – Kathryn Hopkins of Norridgewock visited the Maine Senate on Tuesday, March 19, to receive a legislative sentiment recognizing her for her upcoming induction into the Maple Hall of Fame at the International Maple Museum Centre by the North American Maple Syrup Council. She was selected in October and will be inducted in May.

Kathy is a University of Maine Cooperative Extension educator. She is one of the creators of the International Maple Syrup Institute Maple Grading School, which has helped the maple syrup industry make strides in quality control since it started in 2004 and has served on the Board of Directors of the International Maple Syrup Institute since 2008.
