As an outgoing senior in the Velma-Alma FFA chapter, Morgan Williams said she has really enjoyed being a role model for younger FFA students.
“I also always enjoy interacting with the young 4H kids in the show barn,” Williams said. “I have always loved FFA so, to serve my school really means a lot.”
Williams is the current chapter president in Velma-Alma, and she also shows pigs. But FFA isn’t the only thing that takes up her time.
“I have shown pigs since I was elementary, and agriculture has always been a huge part of my life,” she said. “I am also cheer captain and president of the National Honor Society. Additionally, I’m involved in Beta Club, Yearbook, FCA, and Oklahoma Honor Society.”
In her free time, Williams said she enjoys baking, reading, hanging out with friends and family, and going to the lake. She plans to attend the University of Oklahoma in the fall to eventually major in communication sciences and disorders.
Williams said if you’re on the fence about joining the FFA, she’s got several reasons to help encourage you to join up.
“I’d just share my stories with them,” Williams said. “And tell them about all of my amazing experiences in FFA. I would tell them that FFA is so much more than just agriculture. You learn communication skills, meet amazing people, and make lasting connections.”
As for social distancing, Williams said that’s been made a bit easier with her cell phone, and said her go to app right now is Instagram.
“I love it because you can see what other people are up to, and you can post photos too,” she said.
