Introducing Abby Cardwell of the Deer Creek Lamont FFA Chapter, Your 2021 Northwest Area Star in Agriscience

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 2021.

One Star Finalist featured in the coming days from each of the categories, will be named the State Star Award Winner during the 95th Oklahoma State FFA Convention coming up April 27, and 28th in Oklahoma City.

This week, our coverage of the 2021 Oklahoma FFA Star Award Finalists continues with Agriscience competitor Abby Cardwell representing the Northwest Area from the Deer Creek Lamont FFA chapter.

Cardwell has been working with the Northern Oklahoma College Sheep Center on embryo transfer research the past several years.

For Cardwell, this is a family affair, growing up around the NOC facility as her dad is Sheep Center herd manager.

I watched this for a couple of years and I really wanted to be involved in it, she said.

The research project has been a learning experience for Cardwell.

It taught me that it is nature and you cant control everything, she said.

I really like collecting the embryos and looking at them through the microscope as I like science, she said.

Her growth in FFA has been fostered by her love for science.

I dont like public speaking so working on this has really helped me with my life skills, Cardwell said.

For Cardwell FFA means leadership, teamwork, responsibility, time management and a lot of life skills you can use in the future.

The young FFA student has science in her future as she plans to pursue a Physicians Assistant degree in dermatology.
