Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts Accepting Applications for Mike Thralls Scholarship
The Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts (OACD) is taking applications for two scholarships to honor the late Mike Thralls. In his memory, OACD will be awarding two $500 scholarships beginning in February 2016. Thralls was a graduate of Oklahoma State University who went on to serve as the Oklahoma Assistant Secretary of Agriculture and Executive Director of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission. OACD said Thralls was an unwavering steward of the land who loved Oklahoma and was committed to preserving natural resources.

Applicants must be a current high school senior in Oklahoma that will be pursuing a degree in agriculture or natural resources at OSU or applicants can be currently enrolled at OSU in the College of Agriculture or Natural Resources and be a graduate of an Oklahoma high school.

In the spirit of Thralls, applicants that are involved in 4-H, FFA, farming and/or ranching and have expressed an interest in conservation are encouraged to apply. Applicants should exhibit outstanding character, professionalism and a commitment to serve their community.

Applicants should submit a 500 word essay on a conservation subject of their choice along with their full name, address, telephone number, email address and a copy of their most recent high school or college transcripts to OACD no later than February 1, 2016.

The scholarships will be presented at the 78th annual OACD meeting on Monday, February 29, 2016.
