Oklahoma Farm Bureau has named Burton Harmon as the organization’s safety and special projects coordinator.
In his new position, Harmon will travel the state educating students on bicycle, bus and fire safety measures. In addition, Harmon will lead defensive driving courses and share the dangers of driving under the influence with high school students.
“I’m excited to return to Oklahoma Farm Bureau and help educate students and share agriculture’s story,” Harmon said. “There’s a lot of great things Farm Bureau can do around our state, and I’m looking forward to working with our organization’s programs to better serve our members.”
Harmon began his career with OKFB serving as the north central field representative. For the last six years, he has run his own agricultural spraying business.
Harmon graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in animal science. As active members of Young Farmers and Ranchers, Burton and his wife, Audrey, were state committee members and Excellence in Agriculture state winners, even making it to the top 10 at the AFBF annual convention.
The pair lives in Morrison with their sons Benjamin, Aaron and Jared. Active within his local community, Harmon currently serves as the youth pastor at Hilltop Country Church in Morrison.
