Thank You Oklahoma FFA Alumni Camp

I just got back from Oklahoma FFA Alumni Camp. This was my first time to attend and I ended up having the best time of my life. While up there I met so many new people, attended some really cool workshops, listened to some amazing keynote speakers, and really stepped out of my comfort zone. So today I want to tell you guys how Alumni Camp impacted me, what I learned, and what to expect if you’re ever thinking of attending.

Langham Creek FFA Fundraiser

The projects we had there were evacuated. At its worst, the high water mark was 12 ft in spots with an average of 9 ft. I was told that not far behind the facility there were 20ft spots.

Putting on the Blue Jacket, 6 Years Later

So no, I won’t have as much time in FFA as other members will. I’ll never have my discovery degree and it will take me longer to obtain my Hoosier and American Degrees.

Starting an FFA Chapter

Now I won’t lie, being a new teacher is tough. Being a new teacher and starting a chapter from the ground up, is unimaginably tough. Starting a program with little funding is difficult. Each day is different and faces a new set of obstacles. No matter the obstacle, I can’t express how much I love my job. Especially whenever I watched my students faces light up the moment they put their FFA jackets on.

Why Not Us?

As a second year chapter, we could have sat on the sidelines and watched others reach success. And yet, we didn’t. We didn’t because we knew that for some of our members, they were to take off the jacket for the last time soon.
