Society for Range Management
The SRM award recognizes members under the age of 40 for their superior performance and leadership potential.
“I’m so thankful to the Society for Range Management because when I was in high school, the Society gave me an opportunity to learn more about rangelands and develop the skills needed for a career in rangelands,” she said.
Treadwell has been a member for 17 years and was recently elected president of the SRM Texas Section.
“This is such an honor,” said Treadwell. “I love this organization because it’s a family where stewardship is the universal language.
“I encourage all young professionals to get involved with the Texas Section Society for Range Management because of the mentorship and friendship that cultivates successful rangeland relationships.”
