Chapter: Woodward

Letter to the Members:
Hi everyone! My name is Emily Beaner. I am 18 years old, and I recently graduated from Woodward High School in Woodward, Oklahoma. I am honored to be serving the Oklahoma FFA Association as the state FFA reporter.

My parents are David and April Beaner and Diane Lewis. I have three younger brothers, Cooper, Kannon and Bo. We love to spend time in the sheep and goat barn together. The show ring has brought us closer as a family, and I love the bond that has been built due to the time spent at the barn working sheep and goats. My family has been my rock, and I am so thankful for their constant love and support.

I didn't grow up in the agriculture industry, and it wasn't until eighth grade that I became familiar with the industry and the FFA organization. I started showing market goats as an eighth grader and fell in love. I am so proud to have passed on the tradition to my younger brothers and created a path for them to follow in the agriculture industry.

In addition to exhibiting market goats, I have participated in many other FFA activities, including the Food Science and Technology CDE, Prepared Public Speaking, Livestock Judging, and Opening and Closing Ceremonies. As a high school FFA member I loved attending leadership conferences, camps and workshops. I thoroughly enjoyed the connections and memories made at every event I attended.

My agricultural education instructors, Emily Sewell, Rodney Washmon and Chip Laubach, were my lifeline throughout my five years in the Woodward FFA chapter. They always pushed me to try new things and become more involved in our chapter and the community. They have always been a helping hand and a shoulder to cry on, and I am so thankful for the time and energy they spent pouring into my cup.

When not in the blue corduroy jacket in high school, I was involved in many other activities such as track and field, National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Pep Club.

To be in the position to serve the Oklahoma FFA Association and its members is one of the best opportunities I have ever received. This unique experience will draw me closer to Oklahoma FFA members and the agriculture industry as a whole. I can't wait for this journey ahead of me. I am attending Oklahoma State University, where I am majoring in agricultural communications with a minor in political science.
