Mason Blinson Awarded Richard Gebhart Leadership Legacy Scholarship Mason Blinson, was recently awarded the $2,500 Richard Gebhart Leadership Legacy Scholarship.

This scholarship is offered to students who have already received a 4-year degree and are enrolled in and/or pursuing a post-graduate degree. Blinson is from Buies Creek, North Carolina. She will be graduating Oklahoma State University as an undergraduate in Plant and Soil Sciences and Animal Science. She will then further her education at her alma mater receiving a Master's degree in Plant and Soil Sciences studying digestibility of native and improved grasses in Oklahoma and creating a model to determine the inter-annual availability and variability of such grasses.

The Gebhart Legacy Scholarship Fund is administrated through the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation (OCF). Applicants must be able to show experience and involvement in cattle industry leadership activities and must be members in good standing of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) or their state cattlemen’s association.

Blinson is a member of the North Carolina Cattlemen’s Association, active on campus at OSU and maintains a 3.8 GPA.

“Richard Gebhart is a past president of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association and served in several other capacities within the beef industry on a local, state and national level. Richard earned several degrees in diverse areas,” said Mike Weeks, OCA President.

This scholarship pays honor to Richard while supporting and encouraging young people with an interest in agriculture – another passion of Richard’s.

“We are proud to administer this scholarship for the Gebhart family to assist agricultural youth, like Mason, further their education,” Givens said.

The Gebhart Legacy scholarship was 1 of several scholarships totaling more than $12,750.00 that the OCF presented during 68th Annual OCA Convention and Trade Show.

The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation is dedicated to preserving the heritage of the West and the viability of Oklahoma’s beef cattle industry through research and education. The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation was founded in 1979 and is funded by personal contributions. The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association exists to support and defend the state and nation's beef cattle industry. The OCA officers, board of directors and membership encourages you to join us in our advocacy efforts to ensure less government intervention, lower taxes and a better bottom line.
