Oklahoma Youth Expo Welcomes New 2014 Platinum Sponsor in J&L ServicesMon, 17 Mar 2014 12:54:45 CDT
J&L Services joins the Oklahoma Youth Expo as its most recent platinum-level sponsor.
Mark Pruitt with J&L says his company works with farmers, ranchers and landowners every day and sponsoring the OYE, the world's largest junior livestock show, was a natural fit.
“These kids are a big part of our future and taking over the family’s land and farms. And we really want to work hand-in hand with OYE because it benefits these kids… Our future is these kids and that’s what we want to invest in.”
J&L is a leading provider of cutting-edge technology and expertise in managing environmental by-products. Its ECO1 advanced land application system remotely automates the application of drilling waste constituents once thought to be unmanageable.
Pruitt says OYE pays dividends not just to the participants themselves, but the much wider community influenced by them.
“These kids learn a lot of responsibility. They learn a lot just about themselves in taking care of these animals and developing that relationship with their animals and their ag teachers and community... It’s going to benefit them a lot throughout their lives and make them better people.”
Being better people who have developed responsibility, a strong work ethic, and a commitment to community is precisely what companies like J&L look for in future employees. Pruitt says he would be happy to work with them in the future.
“We’ll take all these good kids because they’ve been groomed well by their parents. And, like I said, they’ve learned responsibility and what it takes and that hard work does pay off in the end.”
