Ricky Joe Davis Named OSU Regent by Governor Mary Fallin

Sat, 09 Apr 2011 22:19:04 CDT

Ricky Joe Davis Named OSU Regent by Governor Mary Fallin Governor Mary Fallin today announced she will appoint Ricky Joe Davis to the Board of Regents for the Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Colleges (OSU/A&M). Davis, a resident of Guthrie, will replace Regent Fred Boettcher of Ponca City, who is resigning effective May 1. Davis will be serving out the remainder of Boettcher’s unexpired term. His appointment is effective May 2, 2011 and expires April 4, 2016. This appointment requires Senate confirmation.

“Continuing to raise the bar for our educational institutions is one of the most important things we can do to ensure the long term prosperity and economic growth of our state,” said Fallin. “Rick received his degree in Agricultural Economics from OSU and then pursued a successful career in agriculture, which is exactly the kind of tradition we are continuing to build on at our colleges and universities. I know he’ll do everything he can to continue to raise the bar in education and pave the way for the success of future generations of college graduates.”

Davis has served as the managing general partner for Davis Farms since 1983. Davis Farms is a 5500 acre wheat, beef and dairy operation in Logan County. He has also served as the general partner at Dimmitt Farms, a hay production business, since 2006.

“I was born to a farming family and have devoted my adult life to a career in agriculture,” said Davis. My time at OSU and my work as a farmer have given me a great appreciation for the unique partnership between our universities and colleges and the agricultural industry. I think that will be a valuable perspective for me to take onto the board and I thank Governor Mary Fallin for the opportunity to serve.”

Davis has formerly served as president of the Guthrie Public Schools Board of Education, president of the Guthrie United Way Board of Directors, president of the Logan County OSU Alumni Association, and president of the Oklahoma FFA Association in 1980-81..

Davis attended Guthrie High School before graduating from OSU with a BS in agricultural economics. He and his wife Pam Simon Davis have two children.
