  Southeast Area VP
Hayden Harper

Chapter: Madill

Letter to the Members:
My name is Hayden Harper, and it is the biggest honor to serve you, Oklahoma FFA, as the Southeast Area vice president.

The blue and gold has been a part of my life since I was born. Both of my parents, Bart and Michelle Harper, have been ag instructors my whole life. Not only that, but my Papa is also a retired ag instructor. So when I say our family bleeds blue and gold, I mean it!

I started the first seven years of my life in Atoka, Oklahoma, where I didn't do much other than run around wild and get into trouble. But life changed in a way I never saw coming when I was in first grade. I remember vividly my mom cutting my hair on the back porch when she first told me we would be moving to Madill.

Of course, my FFA journey didn’t truly begin until I joined the organization as an eighth grader.

I was involved in prepared public speaking, Conduct of Chapter Meetings, Parli Pro and Livestock Evaluation, and I exhibited sheep and swine throughout my FFA career. However, the contest I enjoyed the most was the Environmental Science CDE.

Jackson is my one and only sibling. But past that, he is my best friend. I cannot wait for him to finally get the full experience of the FFA because this year, he will be an eighth grader.

Speaking of amazing experiences, one of the best I have ever had came because of FFA. The Oklahoma Leadership Conference was essentially the makeup for WLC. But when I tell you nothing made a greater impact on me than OLC, I mean it. I learned what it takes to serve others, how to lead to make a difference and how to bring that all back to my community and chapter.

Now, FFA isn’t my entire life. I was also involved in Student Council, NHS and 4-H. I was on the basketball team and, believe it or not, the bowling team. I mainly just enjoyed being a part of teams and building a network of people that could help me down the road.

The past five years of my life have been the best years of my life all because of that blue corduroy jacket. FFA members, I am so pumped and ready to embark on this new journey with you!
