Nicole Scott, Staff Director of U.S. House Agriculture Committee, inducted in Oklahoma Conservation Hall of Fame
As conservation leaders from around the country gathered in our nation’s capital, those representing the State of Oklahoma were honored to recognize one of their own for her outstanding service to rural America and the continued conservation of our natural resource by inducting Nicole Scott, Majority Staff Director of the U.S. House Agriculture Committee and Waurika Oklahoma native into the Oklahoma Conservation Hall of Fame.


“We are proud to have the chance to place Nicole Scott into the Oklahoma Conservation Hall of Fame,” Said Kim Farber, President of the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts (OACD). “Few have worked as hard on behalf of rural America as Nicole has and we are so pleased to have this chance to recognize her service.”


A graduate of the Law School at the University of Oklahoma, Nicole began her career on Capitol Hill as a Legislative Assistant for then Congressman J.C. Watts. In 1999 she joined the staff of Congressman Frank Lucas, serving as His Deputy Chief of Staff for eight years before moving to the staff of the House Agriculture Committee as Republican Staff Director in 2009. As a member of Mr. Lucas’ staff, both in his personal office and on the House Agriculture Committee, Farber said Nicole has always provided outstanding support to Mr. Lucas in his continuing efforts to support the interests of rural Oklahoma and rural America in the Halls of the U.S. Congress.


“Mr. Lucas is also a member of the Conservation Hall of Fame for all the good work he has done but we know with everything they have on their plate, an outstanding Congressman has to have an outstanding staff,” Farber said. “As a native Oklahoman, Nicole Scott has a unique perspective on conservation and agriculture issues that combined with her energy, enthusiasm and dedication make her a wonderful inductee into our Hall of Fame. We are proud and honored to have the chance to present her with this recognition on behalf of Oklahoma Conservation.”


Scott was presented a plaque recognizing her induction into the Oklahoma Conservation Hall of Fame during the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) legislative fly-in March 19 in Washington, D.C. A picture recognizing Nicole Scott as a Conservation Hall of Fame inductee will hang at the offices of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission in Oklahoma City.
