Letter to the Members:
Hello, my name is Carson Capps, and I am honored to be serving the Oklahoma FFA Association as the 2021-2022 Southeast Area vice president.

Growing up, I have been lucky to call Byng, Oklahoma, and Byng Public Schools home. My entire life has revolved around the school, where both of my parents, Brian and Staci Capps, work.

I remember when I was a seventh grader, my brother, a graduating senior, told me his biggest regret was not being involved in FFA. This motivated me to join in eighth grade, and it has truly been the biggest blessing in my life. Through FFA that shy eighth grader was pushed out of his shell, and I found a place where I belonged.

My agricultural instructors, Craig Thompson and Bart Everett, really invested and believed in me and gave me the confidence I needed. While competing in the environmental science CDE, prepared public speaking, greenhand quiz and opening and closing ceremonies there was always a challenge, a lesson, a new friendship and a great story along the way.

My journey within the blue and gold has led to a very diverse supervised agricultural experience: a specialty crop production project for which I buy poinsettias, grow them to maturity and resell them; a turf grass management experience in which I was employed by different companies and organizations doing lawn maintenance; and a goat production project where I exhibited boer influenced wether and doe show goats.

When not in the blue corduroy jacket throughout high school, I played baseball; participated in NHS, FCA and Calculus Club; and was very involved in my church youth group. I also love spending time in the great outdoors hunting and fishing with my friends and family.

I am pursuing a degree in agribusiness: pre-law at Oklahoma State University. After graduation, I plan to attend law school, specializing in Native American law. I aspire to use my education to advocate for agricultural and Native American communities.
