Chapter: Oklahoma Union

Letter to the Members:
Hello, everyone! My name is Kyla Taylor, and I am honored to be serving the Oklahoma FFA Association as the 2022-2023 Northeast Area vice president.

Growing up, I was fortunate enough to call Oklahoma Union Public Schools my home. I started school at Oklahoma Union in pre-K and attended until my recent graduation. I have spent my entire life at Oklahoma Union, where my mom, Brenda Taylor, served as the elementary principal and is now the superintendent.

My family and I live on a ranch just outside of Vinita, Oklahoma, where my dad, Justin Taylor, owns and operates a commercial cow-calf operation. With three generations of ranchers, our family has a rich agricultural history in the Centralia, Oklahoma, area. Some of my favorite memories of my childhood were spent with my dad in the feed truck.

When I was young, I remember watching my older brothers, Truitt and Ty, grow up in the FFA. I was able to see how truly unique this organization is, and that is what motivated me to join in the eighth grade.

My journey within the blue and gold blessed me with many opportunities and life lessons. I exhibited livestock, mostly pigs and sheep, which my grandparents raised. I also participated in prepared public speaking, meat judging, horse and livestock evaluation and entomology. My favorite things, however, were the numerous leadership opportunities, including serving as chapter president, attending Alumni Leadership Camp and participating in the Oklahoma Leadership Conference. I owe a huge thank you to my ag teachers, Mr. Collier and Ms. Comstock, and the OKU FFA.

They have helped to shape me into the person I am today, and I can definitely say I wouldn't be here without them. They always motivated me and provided the support I needed, and I am able to serve the Oklahoma FFA because of them.

Throughout high school, I also enjoyed participating in sports, including softball and basketball. From the ages of 7 to 17, I spent my summers with my momma at a softball field. Sports were a significant part of my life, and through them I was able to learn life lessons and meet some of my best friends. In my free time, I enjoy being with my family and going hunting and fishing.

At Oklahoma State University, I am pursuing a degree in elementary education with a minor in agriculture leadership. I plan to become a teacher in a rural community in our great state of Oklahoma, where I can instill the importance of agriculture in my students at a young age.
