Suzanne Gilbert Named as the 2019 Ag Woman of the Year in Oklahoma at the Diamond Hats Gala

Mon, 14 Oct 2019 04:50:22 CDT

Suzanne Gilbert Named as the 2019 Ag Woman of the Year in Oklahoma at the Diamond Hats Gala On Saturday evening at the 2019 Diamond Hats Gala, the group announced their selection for the 2019 Oklahoma Woman of the Year in Agriculture, Suzanne Gilbert of Tecumseh. The Diamond Hats have set a precedent of annually honoring a female involved in agriculture that has gone above and beyond to influence the agricultural industry as well as promote its significance throughout the state and nation. Almost all of the recipients of this prestigious award were raised in production agriculture and have never left it.

Gilbert is a non stop volunteer- and she has been engaged in many organizations that give back to rural youth groups- the 4-H and FFA. She served as chair of the Oklahoma State FFA Foundation Board of Directors from 2008-2010 and is the first and only woman to serve in this capacity.

Suzanne was recognized as the 2014 Oklahoma FFA VIP Award recipient, one of Journal Recordís 50 Women Making a Difference in Oklahoma in 2016, and the 2011 Oklahoma 4-H Lifetime Volunteer of the Year. The Gilberts were also awarded as the 2017 Oklahoma Limousin Breeders Association Family of the Year. Also in 2017, she was named a Significant Woman in Ag by the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture.

After the announcement was made Saturday evening at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked with Gilbert about the honor and about why she has made 4-H and FFA a priority when it comes to dedicating time and resources.
