Colorado Livestock Association honored the late Dr. William Brock Faulkner, PhD, with the Top Choice Award, CLA’s most prestigious honor at the 2016 CLA Annual Meeting April 13-14.
Dr. Faulkner was a passionate and tireless advocate for the livestock industry in Colorado and across the country. Over the last 9 years Brock worked closely with livestock producers in Colorado on air quality issues related to Rocky Mountain National Park. His career in teaching culminated in serving as Assistant Professor at Texas A&M University; he advised the Secretary of Agriculture on the USDA Agricultural Air Quality Task Force.

In addition to the Top Choice Award Brock has received numerous awards including the 2012 Texas A&M College of Agriculture Award for Outstanding Achievement in Early Career Research, and the 2014 Gale Holloway ASABE Professional Development Award. His greatest professional joy, though, was working with students. He leaves an uncommon legacy of young men and women who were deeply impacted by his teaching and mentorship.
William Brock Faulkner, 34, of Bryan, Texas passed away February 17, 2016, after fighting a two-year battle with leukemia.
