Barry Pollard, M.D.

It is a great honor to be recognized by this organization. I have devoted my life's work to help Oklahomans and our youth.
Dr. Barry Pollard, 2023


Following graduation from Oklahoma State University with a degree in biochemistry and the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine with neurosurgery as his specialty, Barry Pollard established his practice in Enid. During his more than 40 years serving the community, he performed over 20,000 life-saving and life-changing surgeries, procedures previously unavailable in the more rural area of Oklahoma. Pollard’s commitment allowed local citizens to receive treatment and long-term care close to home.

An avid farmer of approximately 10,000 acres, Pollard is a member of the American Angus Association and runs a registered herd of high-quality Angus genetics. He serves as vice president of the national organization, becoming president in 2024. Pollard opened his first John Deere location in 1985. Today, P&K Equipment has grown to 29 John Deere locations in Oklahoma, Iowa, and Arkansas and employs more than 800 men and women. Pollard is well-known for his support of Future Farmers of America and 4-H events, frequently organizing and volunteering at local events.

Pollard served ten years on the Oklahoma State University Foundation’s Board of Trustees, with two years as president during the billion-dollar campaign, and is a founding member of OSU’s Medical Cowboys to ensure funding for those interested in the medical field and serving rural communities. In addition, he currently serves on the board of directors for the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation. His awards and honors include induction to the Oklahoma State University Hall of Fame and the Oklahoma Agriculture Hall of Fame.
