Meet Hannah Williams of the Elmore City/Purnell FFA Chapter the 2018 OK FFA Star in Ag Placement

Meet Hannah Williams of the Elmore City/Purnell FFA Chapter the 2018 OK FFA Star in Ag Placement


Elmore City-Pernell FFA member Hannah Williams found a passion for agriculture through her involvement in FFA and her work at the Blue Daisy Flowers and Gifts, leading her to earn one of Oklahoma FFA’s highest honors: the 2017 State Star in Agricultural Placement. Williams’ supervised agricultural experience was rated the best in agricultural placement among the 794 FFA members who received the State FFA Degree during the 92nd annual State FFA Convention on May 2. Click or tap the PLAYBOX in the window below to watch a short video clip of Hannah talking about her SAE.






The Star winner from the Central Area began her project in 2014 as a floral assistant at Blue Daisy Flowers & Gifts located in Elmore City, Oklahoma.


“Since 2014, I’ve learned how to process flowers, how to tend to plants and try to grow the Blue Daisy into more of an up-to-date flower shop,” Williams said. “I brought the Blue Daisy into social media - Twitter, Instagram, Facebook… It’s been my job to really push the Blue Daisy into the 21st Century.”


Not only has Williams helped the Blue Daisy improve the way it reaches out and markets to its customers, she has also modernized the way the business functions, implementing an electronic payment and inventory system. In addition, she has travelled the state to assist with weddings, floral events and has even presented at workshops educating children and adults, including ag teachers, on basic floral arrangement - which teachers have taken back to their classrooms to instruct their own students.


Williams says communication has played a significant role in her success at the Blue Daisy; a skill she has had to develop over time and says was improved through her time in FFA competing in many different Career Development Events such as public speaking contests.


“We’re trying to keep (the floral) industry thriving,” she said. “It is a smaller part of the agricultural industry, but it still packs a big punch in that yearly revenue for the ag industry.”
