The Ozona Chamber of Commerce
would like to recognize
Oglesby Ranch as our
Business of the Month
“I would like to thank the Ozona Chamber of Commerce for recognizing Oglesby Ranch as the Business of the Month. It is truly an honor and having served on the Board & with several projects, I know it is not an easy task with all the great members that the Chamber serves,” said Sally Oglesby.
“Bailey Headquarters was homesteaded in 1895 by John R. & Roberta Bailey. The “original land deed was signed in 1901 by BOTH of my great-great grandfathers, John R. Bailey, landowner & Charles E. Davidson, the County Judge, upon purchase of the land in full. To my knowledge the young Bailey couple rolled the little house that I also grew up in, using mules and timber to the present site. It is located on the Edwards Plateau of Crockett County with Schleicher County being the eastern border. My great-great grandparents raised cattle, goats and sheep, along with 4 wonderful children. The ranch has sustained 5 generations and grows continually. No matter the situation, good or bad, the land remains steadfast,” continued Sally.
“Presently the Oglesby Ranch, est. 1987, is running hair sheep, Spanish goats, and cattle and pursuing ecotourism interests. I am the sole proprietor at this time, but look forward to having my children take the reins when I can no longer manage. Our ranch heritage is very important and being the original environmentalists is always at the forefront of thought. I am currently teaching HS Government/Economics & World Geography. I have been very blessed over the years to have participated in the TALL (Texas Agricultural Lifetime Leadership), a two-year program that taught me so much about all aspects of agriculture in our state, nation, as well as internationally. From the land to the political arena, we learned why leadership is vital to survivorship. The Ozona Chamber of Commerce has been instrumental in keeping our community alive and thriving, just like the ranch, even in time of struggle.”
Sally served on the Chamber of Commerce board from 2004-2006, and as Chairman of the Board in 2007. She returned to the board to assist the Chamber in serving out a one year Board of Director term in 2011. Every other year since 2007, the Chamber hosts a golf open as part of our Bi-Annual South West Texas Oil & Gas Trade Show. Sally plays an integral part in the planning of this event. She has also served as Chair to the Chamber Crockett County Interpretive Trail Committee and given countless hours to the development of the project. Sally has been a positive and supportive partner to the Chamber and her community.
The Chamber of Commerce would like to recognize and thank Sally Oglesby for her personal contributions, and Oglesby Ranch as a business asset to the county.
