FFA State President Courtney Maye Previews Upcoming ConventionFri, 27 Apr 2012 15:42:01 CDT
The State FFA Convention is coming up May 1st and 2nd in Oklahoma City. It will be two days packed with leadership training, workshops, public speaking championships, a career show, officer elections and much more.
Oklahoma State FFA President Courtney Maye spoke to Ron Hays about the upcoming convention and what it means.
"I think it's a really good time to reward our members for all their accomplishments throughout the year. And not only that, our members get to see the sponsors, the alumni, the people who are receiving their honorary state FFA degree, all the state FFA degree recipients. And it's a good time to motivate those young FFA members-not only reward them for their accomplishments-but motivate the next generation to keep dreaming big and working hard."
Maye says another aspect of the convention is leadership.
"There are a lot of leadership training activities, workshops, motivational speakers. So it's definitely good. The leadership aspect is there. The young FFA members who maybe didn't have the opportunity to go to some of our leadership camps or leadership conferences can kind of get a feel of that at state FFA convention."
Courtney May will be Ron Hay's guest this Saturday morning on "In the Field" on Channel 9 at 6:40.
