“I dreamed of the day I would have my very own blue and gold jacket,” said Maye, who is a freshman agricultural communications major at Oklahoma State University. “As the daughter of an agricultural education teacher, I developed a love for this organization at a very early age, and it still hasn’t left me today.”
Seven additional FFA members will join Maye on the 2011-2012 Oklahoma FFA officer team: Brandon Baumgarten, Oilton FFA, secretary; Kaleigh Lynch, Owasso FFA, reporter; Hannah Nemecek, Skiatook FFA, northeast district vice president; Joshua Conaway, Ringwood FFA, northwest district vice president; Andrew Aldridge, Comanche FFA, central district vice president; Kristal Williams, Latta FFA, southeast district vice president; and Justin Turner, Cement FFA, southwest district vice president.
