Oilseed Commission Establishes Mark C. Boyles Meritorious Service Award

The Oklahoma Oilseed Commission is pleased to announce the establishment of the Mark C. Boyles Oilseed Industry Meritorious Service Award.

This award will be presented annually by the Oklahoma Oilseed Commission to an individual who exemplifies the professionalism and passion for the oilseed industry that characterized Mark’s life and service.

Following an outstanding career in the chemical industry, Mark Boyles began his work with canola in 2003 and was a driving force in the development of the southern Great Plains canola industry. He worked tirelessly to understand the culture of the crop so he could share his knowledge and experience with growers and others in the industry. His contributions were instrumental in the success of Oklahoma State University’s efforts to introduce winter canola into the state through the Okanola Project.

Mark’s long service to the agricultural industry was characterized by passion, integrity, and professionalism. His commitment to the oilseed industry was unparalleled. It is the intent of the Oklahoma Oilseed Commission to recognize an individual in the oilseed industry who has demonstrated these same characteristics.

Nominations are due no later than July 7, 2014 at the OOC office. The award will be presented at the summer canola meeting scheduled for July 29th in Enid, OK.

The Oklahoma Oilseed Commission is requesting nominations for this award.
