OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin today announced she has re-appointed Rick Davis to the Board of Regents for Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Colleges. He has served on the board since 2011, when he was appointed to fill an unexpired term.
Davis, of Guthrie, is one of the governor’s three at-large appointees to the nine-member board, which also includes the president of the Oklahoma State Board of Agriculture and representatives from each of Oklahoma’s five congressional districts.
“Rick has done an outstanding job of using his agricultural background to bolster state colleges overseen by the Board of Regents for Oklahoma A&M Colleges,” Fallin said. “I am confident he will continue to guide those institutions as they raise the bar for education in our state, ensuring a bright future for their graduates.”
Davis’ new eight-year term as regent must be confirmed by the Oklahoma Senate.
Davis is managing general partner of Davis Farms, a family-owned farming operation with wheat, beef and dairy production in Logan County. He also is managing general partner of Dimmitt Hay, a hay production and supply company based in Guthrie.
Davis graduated from Oklahoma State University with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural economics. He was recognized as one of the university’s top 10 senior men in 1983.
He is a member of Harmony Community Church and the Guthrie Rotary Club, as well as serving on the board of the Logan County Farm Bureau since 1988.
Davis and his wife, Pam, have two adult children and one grandson.
