Oklahoma Students to attend okPORK’s Youth Leadership Camp



After reviewing applicants statewide, Oklahoma Pork Council (okPORK) officials have selected 12 Oklahoma high school students as 2014 okPORK Youth Leadership Camp participants. The students will spend June 23-27 learning about the pork industry, including production, sales and career opportunities. The student participants are:


Amber Conrady - Woodward


Jasmyn Davis – Mangum


Emily Franke – Covington


Cheyenne Gaff – Jet


Courtney Hendershot – Shawnee


Sadie Higgins – Cement


Logan Holt – Shattuck


Robert Johnson – Choctaw


Kassie Kilgore – Porter


Austin Kirk – Yukon


McKayla Malone – Big Cabin


Grant Wilber – Cherokee


The educator participant is: Josh Davis – agriculture teacher at Bethel High School


The camp begins in Stillwater, and includes sessions in Ames, Hennessey, Guymon, Woodward and Springdale, Arkansas. Camp participants will learn all phases of the industry from breeding sows to selling pork chops. Participants will also complete a live animal evaluation and actually harvest and process the hogs they evaluate.


“We need more young people who are interested in careers in the pork industry,” said Roy Lee Lindsey, Executive Director of okPORK. “This camp gives participants the opportunity to see all aspects of the industry while also educating them on issues that affect pork production from outside the farm.”
