In the spirit of Mike Thralls, this award encourages applicants who are students involved in 4-H, FFA, farming and/or ranching and have expressed an interest in conservation. The students selected each year exhibit outstanding character, professionalism and a commitment to serve their community.
Congratulations Seth Stone and Hunter Jordan on being the fourth annual Mike Thralls Memorial Scholarship winners. The scholarships were awarded on April 23, 2019 at the Oklahoma State Capitol. The awards ceremony was part of the annual "Conservation Day at the Capitol" event where conservation district directors, cooperators, and employees are encouraged to share with legislators the important services that conservation districts provide to the community in the area of natural resources conservation.
