Wilke Selected for The Journal Record's Woman of the Year Program

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 17:22:26 CDT

Wilke Selected for The Journal Recordís Woman of the Year Program Monica Wilke, executive director of Oklahoma Farm Bureau and Affiliated Companies, has been selected as one of The Journal Record's "50 Making a Difference" for 2015. This is part of The Journal Record's Woman of the Year program, which recognizes Oklahoma's leading women excelling in professional leadership and community activities.

Wilke will receive her honor at an Oct. 1 gala event at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

Wilke is a member of several legal and community organizations. She has served as president of the Oklahoma Diamond Hats, a women's leadership group that provides scholarships to agriculture youth, and she received that organization's highest honor of Agriculture Woman of the Year for 2010. She also serves her community through membership in the Junior League of Oklahoma City, the Oklahoma FFA Foundation Board and Women's Leadership Exchange.

Agriculture and rural Oklahoma have been a part of Wilke's life since childhood. Having grown up on a farm in the southwestern Oklahoma town of Grandfield, she was actively involved in 4-H and FFA. Wilke attributes most of her success to having grown up in a rural Oklahoma town where agriculture was "the way of life".
