Noble Research Institute receives gift for youth education program

  Estimated read time:

ARDMORE, Okla. — Noble Research Institute received a $10,000 check from Trammell Crow Company during a recent signing ceremony of the Noble Energy building to Carter County Facilities Trust last month.

The gift will be used by Noble Academy, the Noble Research Institute's youth education and outreach program. Noble Academy's mission is to educate student audiences about soil, agriculture, research and their relationship to the students. The gift will be used for teacher education, hands-on classroom education and curriculum development.

"We are grateful to the Trammell Crow Company for their generous donation to the Noble Research Institute," said Mary Kate Wilson, director of philanthropy, engagement and special projects. "The impact of this gift will be far reaching as it will allow Noble Academy to further our educational activities to impact more teachers and students."

The Trammell Crow Company helped provided architectural design services to Noble Energy in recent years. In honor of their work with Noble Energy, Trammell Crow wanted to provide a gift of appreciation. The companies agreed that the Noble Research Institute, which was established by philanthropist Lloyd Noble, who also founded Noble Energy, was the correct recipient of those funds.

Noble Research Institute, LLC (www.noble.org) is an independent nonprofit agricultural research organization dedicated to delivering solutions to great agricultural challenges. Headquartered in Ardmore, Oklahoma, Noble’s goal is to achieve land stewardship for improved soil health in grazing animal production with lasting producer profitability. Achievement of this goal will be measured by farmers and ranchers profitably regenerating hundreds of millions of acres of U.S. grazing lands. Noble aims to remove, mitigate or help producers avoid the barriers that deter the lasting use of regenerative, profitable land management practices in grazing animal production.

Researchers, consultants, educators and ranch staff work together to give farmers and ranchers the skills and tools to regenerate the land in a profitable manner. Noble researchers and educators seek and deliver answers to producer questions concerning regenerative management of pasture and range environments, wildlife, pecan production, and livestock production. Regenerative management recognizes that each decision made on the ranch impacts the interactions of the soil, plants, water, animals and producers. Noble’s 14,000 acres of working ranch lands provide a living laboratory on which to demonstrate and practice regenerative principles and ideas to deliver value to farmers and ranchers across the U.S.
