Meet Your Oklahoma FFA President Courtney MayeThu, 13 Oct 2011 19:35:20 CDT
The Oklahoma FFA delegation is gearing up for National FFA Convention in Indianapolis next week and Oklahoma FFA President Courtney Maye will lead the Oklahoma delegation while attending. Maye is from Haworth, Okla., and the Haworth FFA Chapter. She is also a sophomore at Oklahoma State University majoring in Agricultural Communications.
Maye says, coming from the Haworth FFA Chapter, their chapter tried to provide a wide range of areas for members to become involved in, such as livestock judging, dairy cattle evaluation, public speak, and parliamentary procedure. Maye says this allowed members within their chapter to really find their niche within the FFA organization.
Maye was elected Oklahoma FFA President last May and will be attending National FFA Convention for the second time as a state officer. On her last trip to National Convention, Maye says she was impressed by the structure of the convention, like the committees and the delegate process. Being able to see how it all works and to participate as a delegate was an opportunity that Maye says really impressed her.
National FFA Convention is also a great opportunity for FFA members to spread the word about the organization and agriculture as they stay in Indianapolis. Many of the FFA members are asked by others what their jackets mean or what the organization is all about says Maye.
