ENID, Okla. — Waynoka FFA adviser Jorge Huizar and 10 FFA members attended the 87th Oklahoma State FFA Convention.

The convention’s main theme was “Grow Like That.” Members were encouraged to grow to be the best they can be.  They listened to many speakers, including an inspiring speech from the outgoing President Brandon Baumgarten, titled “Something to Say.”  

Many Waynoka FFA members participated in the convention by performing or receiving awards. Jill Whipple was in the FFA chorus. The Food Science team, which included Hannah Darr, Maria Wilcox, Josiah Darr and Andrew Miller, was recognized for placing third in the state.  Josiah Darr was recognized for placing first in the state with his FFA Reporter’s Book. Hannah Darr received a scholarship to attend Washington Leadership Conference. At the closing session of the convention, Whipple had the honor of receiving her State FFA Degree.
