Jared Yost of the Lomega FFA Chapter, won the National Proficiency Award in Grain Production- Entrepreneurship at the 2009 National FFA Convention in Indianapolis. Jared is one of 11 Oklahoma FFA members who won the National title in their project area, the most of any state in the US.
Jared Yost wants to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, who both were known as top-quality producers in their rural Oklahoma community. He started by producing a small acreage of wheat for a 4-H wheat show. He soon roved that he had a real knack for farming by winning the State 4-H Wheat Competition. He then set his sights on winning FFA’s wheat competition, which would make him one of few, elite individuals to win that title from both organizations. Jared is currently attending Southwestern Oklahoma State University, majoring in business management. His ambitions are supported by his parents Mike and Diane Yost, and by his Lomega FFA chapter advisor, Brandon Brown.
