Piper Merritt Waits for Saturday Afternoon and the Word on the New National FFA Officer Team


All that is left is the waiting for the 24 National Officer candidates for the 2017-18 National FFA Officer Team. That group of 24 of the very best that FFA has produced includes Piper Merritt of the Owasso FFA Chapter. Merritt is a sophomore at Oklahoma State University and talked with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays about twenty four hours until the announcement will be made on stage about the makeup of the new officer team for the 650,000 member youth orgranization.


She was upbeat about the week, calling it an incredible process and one that will make her a better person whether she returns to OSU as a student or instead returns to OSU to put her undergraduate studies on hold for one year.
