Check Out Your 2019 Southeast Area Star in Agribusiness, Colten Spears of the Atoka FFA Chapter


During the month of April, the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network and Oklahoma Farm Report is spotlighting the twenty Area Stars of Oklahoma FFA that are among the highest achievers in the organization. The stars come from the five areas in four categories- Star in Ag Placement, Star in Agriscience, Star in Agribusiness and Star in Production Agriculture. This week, we spotlight the five area stars in Agribusiness for 2019. One Star Finalist featured in the coming days from each of the categories, will be named the State Star Award Winner during the Oklahoma State FFA Convention coming up April 30 - May 1, 2019 in Oklahoma City.



This week, our coverage of the 2019 Oklahoma FFA Star Award Finalists continues with Colten Spears of the Atoka FFA Chapter, your 2019 Southeast Area Star in Agribusiness. Colten runs a successful lawn care business with his step dad. Dealing with his clients is something he really enjoys and great customer service is what he strives for.



“Being there working with the customers, knowing exactly what they want is very key to any business and that’s what I take to heart on my business.”



It began with his yard plus a neighbor’s, and has expanded from there. At their house Colten works on and maintains his two mowers, weed eater, and blower.



“Working and learning how to work on the equipment is vital. That has been a very beneficial part to this business.”



Expansion plans are in the future after graduation says Spears. He wants to reach the surrounding counties to his southeast Oklahoma operation and hopefully keep growing from there.
