Ron Hays Selected for National Educator Cooperation Award
Ron Hays, Director of Farm Programming at Radio Oklahoma Network in Oklahoma City, Okla., is one of only six individuals nationwide who received the National Association of Agricultural Educators Outstanding Cooperation on November 30 at the NAAE annual convention in Atlanta.

The son of an agriculture teacher, Hays has always had a passion for agriculture. He grew up raising pigs, sheep and various crops. As a young man, he developed a passion for public speaking as well.

Hays is very involved in the agriculture community on many different levels. Currently serving as the Director of Farm Programming at Radio Oklahoma Network, he uses various forms of media to inform a broad audience about the importance of agriculture. Radio, television, websites, e-mail, newsletters and Twitter allow Hays to be the voice of Oklahoma farmers and ranchers, rural communities, agribusinesses, and 4H and FFA student organizations.

Each year, Hays attends the National FFA Convention and covers the accomplishments of Oklahoma FFA members. While at the convention, he also serves as a speech and proficiency awards judge. Hays also produces the Stars Over Oklahoma presentation for the Oklahoma State FFA Convention each year.    

As a professional, Hays has served the Oklahoma agriculture community well. He is a past president of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting. He has been recognized as a National Farm Broadcaster of the Year and is a three-time winner of the Oscars in Agriculture. Hays has also been inducted into the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

“When it comes to media attention for Oklahoma FFA members and chapters, our go-to-guy is Ron Hays,” said Mike Robison, Oklahoma State Agricultural Education staff member. “We could not ask for anyone better. He delivers for us year after year.”
Each of the six regional Outstanding Cooperation Award winners received a plaque. NAAE is the professional association for agricultural educators. Its mission is “professionals providing agricultural education for the global community through visionary leadership, advocacy and service.” The NAAE office is located in Lexington, Ky.
