Congratulations to Randy Gilbert and Rusty Gosz who have been announced as 2020 Oklahoma Youth Expo Show Honorees.
Celeste Nelson, long time supporter of the Oklahoma Youth Expo congratulated both gentlemen on being recipients this year saying, " Smiles and willing spirit embody the two honorees selected for the 2020 OYE - familiar faces at the show for many years. These two men have consistently supported the show’s activities throughout their various roles.
It is with extreme pleasure to announce this year’s recipients of the Show Honorees, Randy Gilbert and Rusty Gosz to share this great honor.
Both men are graduates of Oklahoma State University in the School of Agriculture, focusing their education on the young pupils interested in that area.
Rusty went on to earn a master’s degree and has been involved with training programs and works to coordinate state youth livestock programs.
Some of these programs include OSU Judging, field days, and judging contests and activities at the state fairs and the National FFA Convention. He has played a vital role with OYE throughout the
years as he serves on the swine committee.
Randy Gilbert has also been involved in FFA as an instructor for five years. He later returned to Tecumseh, where he operates the family trucking business and devotes countless resources and
volunteer hours to promote agriculture youth.
From livestock shows to youth rodeo activities, Randy is always be there to help.
Both men have received numerous awards and recognitions for their years of service to Oklahoma agriculture. These men are active in their communities and fiercely loyal to their families.
The Gosz family consists of wife, Heather, and eight children, Rachel, Johnathan, Laura, David, Matthew, Kate, Caroline and Christian. Understandably, those children consume a great deal of
Rusty’s time with their church and school activities.
Randy and Suzanne Gilbert have two daughters, Annie Jo and Dustie, son-in-law Jordan and three grandchildren. Yes, these are busy people!
These are two of the most congenial and pleasant people with whom to work; their happy disposition help tackle their projects, and you can always depend on them. The list of past honorees is filled
with some of Oklahoma’s most outstanding agriculture people, and adding these two certainly continues to complement our group.
Congratulations to both Randy and Rusty - we’re proud to have you join the group."
