Leedey’s Karlee Danielson – FFA Spotlight Presented by Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma
Karlee Danielson never thought she would enjoy being part of FFA when she first joined in the eighth grade.
“I first got involved in FFA because I needed another class and didn’t want to take computers. I wasn’t sure I would like Ag class because I didn’t think I was the type of person that fit into FFA,” said Danielson. “My parents encouraged me to get involved in FFA because if I had to take the class then I might as well participate. My Ag teacher also encouraged me to be active in FFA.”
Danielson showed pigs in middle school and early into high school, but eventually decided that her schedule was too full and stepped away from showing.
“I showed pigs from 8th-10th grade and really enjoyed it. It’s a great way to learn responsibility and learn how to work for what you want. It was such a great feeling to win after all the hard work put in. I stopped showing because I’m very active in sports and other organizations and it was just too much to juggle all at once,” said Danielson.
There are many things about FFA Danielson has enjoyed including meeting new people.
“I enjoy all the different people I have got to meet, and all the lessons I have learned that will help me throughout life. I have learned how to talk to others and the value of hard work. I have also been educated agriculturally,” said Danielson.
Away from FFA, Danielson is involved in many other activities including FCCLA and FOR Club.
“I am involved in lots of different clubs and organizations at school, some include; JCC, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Student Council, and I’m also on the superintendent’s honor roll. I am a member of the high school basketball and softball teams,” said Danielson.
