FFA officers are challenged to 'Lead Up'

September 22, 2021

Officers of the Comanche FFA chapter participated in the 2021 Oklahoma FFA Chapter Officer Leadership Training Conference Sept. 7 at the Embassy Suites in Norman.

The eight state FFA officers planned and conducted this year’s conference based on the theme, “Lead Up.” Elected officers from each of the 68 high school FFA chapters in the Central area attended the conference, which equipped each student with leadership tools that focused on specific officer duties and leading when one is unsure what to do.

Rhett Laubach, Edmond, Oklahoma, was the keynote speaker for the conference. He is an accomplished professional speaker, leadership coach and served as state FFA president in 1992-1993.

“Oklahoma FFA is such an incredible organization because of the natural leadership that is found in our membership,” said Dalton Rogers, state FFA president. “As an association we want to make sure that those officers elected to serve on the local level are prepared to “Lead Up” within their chapters. Expressing to the best of their abilities the leadership that our association is best known for.”

Officers attending from the Comanche chapter were: Dalton Stevens, president, Jacob Potesak, vice president; Emaleigh Parks, secretary; Ty Martin, treasurer; Austin James, reporter; Tucker Oliver, sentinel, and advisors James and Shelbi Morgan.

The COLT Conference is sponsored by Public Service Company of Oklahoma as a special project of the Oklahoma FFA Foundation. FFA is an integral part of the agricultural education division of the Oklahoma Department of CareerTech Education. There are 24,269 Oklahoma FFA members in 365 high schools statewide.
