AFR Announces 2017 Outstanding Youth Award
Two Oklahoma college students received the 2017 Outstanding Youth Award during the recent American Farmers & Ranchers annual convention in Norman, Okla. The award honors young people who have demonstrated strong leadership in meeting the challenges of an increasingly complex agricultural industry.
Megan Trantham, Boise City, is a sophomore at Oklahoma State University. She has been active in AFR speech contests and other leadership activities including serving on the AFR Youth Advisory Council.
Brady Womack, Morris, is a sophomore at Connors State College. He has been active in AFR leadership events and also served on the Youth Advisory Council.
"This award is a way of recognizing individuals for their success and service," said Micaela Danker, AFR youth development coordinator. "Both of these students have been very active in our youth programs and continue to give back to AFR and their communities by serving as volunteers throughout the year. These students have exemplified true leadership and involvement and we are confident in these young people's ability to lead their peers."
