Nominations Sought for Agriculture Hall of Fame

Fri, 10 Feb 2012 14:45:08 CST

Nominations Sought for Agriculture Hall of Fame  The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry (ODAFF) is seeking nominations for the Governor’s Outstanding Achievement Award in Agriculture. This award, created in 1998, honors leaders in the agriculture industry who have exemplary personal values and agricultural achievements in Oklahoma. The award winner will be inducted into the Oklahoma Agriculture Hall of Fame located at the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry.

Previous recipients of the award exhibited high standards of conduct, leadership, innovation, and accomplishment in agriculture. These individuals were from different parts of Oklahoma and many times were not widely known outside of their specific agricultural groups or commodities. However, each Hall of Fame inductee has served as a community leader in addition to being an agricultural producer who made a significant impact on the lives of others.

Selfless service, iron determination, a love of farming and willingness to take necessary business risks are traits that unite the past honorees. They have guided their families and communities to success by excelling as dairymen, cattle ranchers, pork producers, wheat farmers, conservationists and educators.

“The Governor’s Outstanding Achievement Award in Agriculture gives us the opportunity to recognize those individuals who have made a positive and lasting impact on agriculture in our state,” said Jim Reese, Oklahoma Secretary of Agriculture.

The deadline for all nominations is Friday, February 17, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. Recipients will be selected by a committee which includes representatives of agricultural commodity organizations as well as the Oklahoma Secretary of Agriculture. Any questions regarding the nomination procedure or completion of the official nomination form should be directed to Jason Harvey at (405) 522-5563.

The official nomination form can be found by clicking here.
