Enid News and Eagle

ENID, Okla. — Drummond FFA chapter and agricultural education program recently welcomed student teacher Kelby Rounsaville, an animal science/agricultural education senior from Oklahoma State University.

The student teaching program will allow Rounsaville to bridge the gap between teaching theory and practice. During his 12-week student teaching experience, Rounsaville will teach classes, be involved with FFA activities and assist with supervised agricultural education experiences under the guidance of cooperating teacher Keith Dillingham.

“I am extremely excited to become a part of an elite Agriculture Education program,” Rounsaville said. “I am also extremely excited to meet the students and start working with them towards chapter events.”

Rounsaville grew up in Tecumseh, where he was involved with the Tecumseh FFA chapter. He served as a chapter officer all four years, was on the livestock judging team, exhibited sheep and cattle, participated in prepared public speaking, was on the shooting sports team and was a candidate for the Central District vice president for the Oklahoma FFA Association.  

Rounsaville has been involved with the Collegiate FFA, Block and Bridle Club and the OSU Collegiate Cattlemen’s Club during his tenure at OSU. With Collegiate FFA he has served as a chaperon for the Made For Excellence Conference, was on the staff for the State Convention of the Oklahoma FFA Association and served as a small group leader for Oklahoma FFA Alumni Leadership Camp.

Upon completion of the student teaching experience, Rounsaville will return to Oklahoma State University in Stillwater where he will earn a bachelor of science degree in agriculture with a major in animal science/agricultural education.
