2011 Oklahoma FFA Convention Set for May 3 and 4

More than 10,000 Oklahoma FFA members representing 354 high school chapters across the state are expected to attend the 85th Annual State FFA Convention, May 3-4, at the Cox Convention Center in downtown Oklahoma City.

This yearís convention theme is Infinite Potential. Leadership is an important component of FFA. By exercising exceptional leadership skills, FFA members discover the significance of being a good role model, and most importantly, serving others. Through agricultural education and FFA, these young people are realizing their potential is infinite.

The state FFA convention is the culmination of the yearís activities for FFA members.

It is an opportunity for individual awards and recognition, delegate business, officer elections, and a celebration of chapter accomplishments. The Oklahoma FFA Foundation has raised approximately $461,000 this year from sponsors who will provide cash awards, scholarships, plaques and honor banquets to award winners and degree recipients. Title sponsors of the convention are Blue & Gold Sausage Company, Chesapeake Energy Corporation, The Craig Foundation and Oklahoma Ford Dealers.

The state FFA officers, a team of eight student leaders, plan the convention and conduct the official ceremonies. The 2010-2011 state FFA officers are Emily Beanland, president, Hollis; Marty Jones, secretary, Owasso; Trevor Lucas, reporter, Central High; Owen Hossack, northeast district vice president, Owasso; Katie McCauley, central district vice president, Waurika; Courtney Maye, southeast district vice president, Haworth; and Dakota Miller, southwest district vice president, Amber-Pocasset. (The picture here is of the state officers along with Martha Burger of Chesapeake Energy.)

Delegates from each chapter will vote to elect the 2011-2012 state FFA officer team.

Riley Pagett, the current national FFA president from Woodward, Okla., will attend the convention to provide a keynote address and workshop for Oklahoma FFA members. In addition to sharing the agricultural education message, Pagett will encourage members to lead with a servantís heart.
