Introducing Kenzie McAlister of the Stillwater FFA Chapter, Your 2021 Central 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.

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 Kenzie McAlister, a member of the Stillwater FFA in the Central region.

McAlister combined her love of horses with science.

Over the past five years I have dived into every aspect of the horse from the digestive system to the anatomical build of the horse, she said.

I have been around horses since I could walk, she said.

When I joined FFA I really wanted to combine my two favorite things, science and horses, she said.

My advisor and my parents really guided me through this process, she said.

I really want to take my experiments to the collegiate level, she said.

I have learned to be patient as most of these projects took weeks and months to get the exact degree, she said.

The Stillwater student said her favorite FFA moments have been competing, and winning the state Agriscience awards, as well as being a national finalist.

I was also able to win the 2020 doe fitting competition, she said.

FFA has shown me many opportunities and agriscience can be a career, she said.

She plans to attend Mississippi State University in the fall, studying equestrian science, and continue her rodeo career.
