Young Leaders Recognized with AFR/OFU Star Award
Four Oklahoma youth were recently recognized for their involvement in American Farmers & Ranchers/Oklahoma Farmers Union (AFR/OFU) youth and leadership activities at the AFR/OFU 108th State Convention Feb. 23. The AFR/OFU Star Youth Award is the highest honor a youth can receive from the AFR/OFU Youth Program.


This year’s recipients were Kelsie Williams, Hollis; Dyson Runyan, Madill; Micaela Danker, Wellston; and Barrett Powell, Ringwood. Students statewide are eligible for the honor. Recipients must have been active in the AFR/OFU Youth Program for a minimum of five years leading to high school graduation.


“The AFR Youth Program is overflowing with tomorrow’s young leaders,” said AFR President Terry Detrick. “We are confident in our award recipients’ desire and ability to lead their generation as they rise to the challenges of the ever-changing agricultural industry.”


The 2013 AFR Star Youth Award recognizes rising stars for individual achievement and service, both to the organization and in their communities. Recipients are selected based on their attitude toward agriculture, their passion to help others and their personal accomplishments. They are involved in many aspects of the youth program and are active leaders for younger students.   


AFR and its sister organization, Oklahoma Farmers Union, provide the youth of Oklahoma varied opportunities to develop into the leaders of tomorrow. The AFR Star Youth Award is just one of several exciting AFR Youth Program traditions. AFR hosts a fall speech contest, summer youth leadership summit, statewide scholarships, livestock handling and skills contest, livestock judging and grading, and many other leadership opportunities.


For more information on the AFR Star Youth Award or other AFR youth opportunities, contact AFR Youth & Education Coordinator Lin Fariss at (405)218-5561 or lfariss@afrmic.com.
