Mike Thralls didn't just cast seeds of knowledge out and then turn and walk away. He made sure the information he shared about conservation/agriculture set deep roots that would be sustainable. He nurtured what he sowed.
This past February marked five years since his passing, and this year's scholarship recipients represent the fifth year of recognition of the Mike Thralls Memorial Scholarships. The two $500 scholarships are awarded on an annual basis to students who are either current high school seniors that will be pursuing a degree in agriculture or natural resources at Oklahoma State University, or students currently enrolled at OSU in the Ferguson College of Agriculture and are graduates of an Oklahoma high school.

Thralls served agriculture and conservation is so many ways including serving through the years as the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission and as the Assistant Secretary of Agriculture. He also served as President of the National Association of State Conservation Agencies (NASCA).

The 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.

"He would be very proud for the recipients in all that they have accomplished and what they want to further do for agriculture and conservation," said Mike's wife, Donna Thralls.
