Leadership

Through the Faces of Leadership Conference made possible by the Coley-Malir Leadership Endowment young leaders are exposed to opportunities in the industry and the conference cultivates communication skills, encourage working in team settings and focus on individual development. This summer the conference was held in Oklahoma City and a highlight was a trip to Oklahoma State University.

Committed to Leadership

Education

The foundation holds fast to their mission of scholarship, leadership and education by providing programs that not only showcase the junior’s talents, but build leaders and prepare them for a bright future in the beef industry and beyond.
