O.J. Sikes- WMA Award Winner

www.westernmusic.com [cached]

In 2005, during their 10th annual Will Rogers Awards event in Ft. Worth, the Academy of Western Artists presented him, along with Jack & Voleta Hummel, with the Academy's first John A. Lomax Award for his contribution to the preservation and continuation of Western music. He is currently serving with Johnny Western, Rex Allen, Jr., Roy Rogers, Jr. and others on the Western Music Association's Advisory Board, and is a member of the WMA's Hall of Fame selection committee.

While his promotion of Westen music has been voluntary, for many years he had a "day job" with the United Nations in N.Y., a job that took him to over 55 countries, advising governments on population issues. After graduating from Vanderbilt University, he entered the U.S. Peace Corps and served two years on the high plains in a remote area of Peru, where he met his wife, Elena. In Peru, he developed an interest in Public Health. Upon returning to the U.S. he worked for the U.S. Center for Disease Control, subsequently enrolling in the Master of Public Health program at UNC. After doing pioneering work in reproductive health in small communities in N.C., he worked with UNESCO in Paris, where he helped initiate that organization's work in Population Education, the study of population change and its impacts on families and societies. In 1975, he moved to N.Y. where he became head of the office of education, communication & youth at the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). There, he continued to work on population education, sat on the Inter-Agency board of the global Education For All (EFA) program, and wrote dozens of journal articles on education and communication for the World Health Organization, UNESCO, UNICEF, UNFPA and others.
He retired after 30 years with the UN system in 2001.
