Tyler Norvell Steps Into Executive Directorship of Youth Expo Just Weeks Ahead of 2012 Event

With the start of the 2012 Oklahoma Youth Expo less than two months away- the world's largest junior livestock show is breaking in a new Executive Director. Just before Christmas, Tyler Norvell was named Executive Director of the Oklahoma Youth Expo by the Board of Directors.

Norvell is taking the position currently held by Jeramy Rich, who is leaving to pursue other business opportunities. "We truly appreciate the hard work and time that Jeramy has put in over the past five years and wish him the very best in his future endeavors. We know he will be a great success at whatever path he may choose to take," said Bob Funk, Chairman of the OYE Board. "We are grateful for Jeramy's dedicated service to the junior livestock program and, at the same time, look forward to Tyler joining us as well as the new ideas and vision he will bring to the table."

Norvell joins the OYE after spending the past six years working in governmental affairs for Oklahoma Farm Bureau. In that role he was responsible for implementing agricultural policies in both Washington D.C. and at the state capitol for Oklahoma's largest agricultural grassroots organization.

"The junior livestock show program has always played a significant role in my life," Norvell said. "I grew up in this program, and to have the opportunity to give back is very exciting. I look forward to the opportunity of improving and growing the Oklahoma Youth Expo and continuing the vision Bob Funk, Jimmy Harrel, and Justin Whitefield had when they began this journey in 2001."
