“We never take the opportunit­y to influence Oklahoma’s youth lightly. During our chapter tours, we hope to understand the unique factors that make every chapter different and inspire their members to influence their community for the better,” said Braden Burns, state FFA president. “During these visits, the state officer team wants to go beyond agricultur­e and leadership and take this chance to inspire students into action for the betterment of their lives and those around them.”

Throughout the Goodwill Tour, state officers will challenge FFA members to go all out in their passion for agricultur­e and leadership. A total of 62 chapters were selected for the 2023 tour from the 366 total chapters in the state.

Visiting the local chapter are Braden Burns, state president; Hayden Harper, southeast area vice president; Kyla Taylor, northeast area vice president; and Ava Jernigan, state secretary.
