This week’s spotlight will feature our vice president, Hannah Williams.
This is Hannah’s second year to hold this position and she served as the chapter reporter in 2015-16.
She is the 18-year-old daughter of Susie and Terry Williams and she is a senior at ECPHS. Hannah is a very active member; she participates in public speaking, proficiency awards, CDE contests, agriscience fair, and goat showing.
As a junior, Hannah served as the COLT Conference opening/closing ceremonies reporter, she was the first place individual at the Central District Meat Evaluation, and placed third on the state level in the ag-sales proficiency award.
That same year Hannah was the state champion at the State American Farmers and Ranchers speech contest in the Senior Agribusiness category.
In 2017, Hannah placed third at the Central District Speech Contest, placed fourth at the agriscience fair, had the Grand Champion doe and Reserve Grand wether at the Garvin County livestock show, and was the state proficiency award winner in Ag-Sales Placement.
As a senior, Hannah placed second at the AFR district speech contest, advancing her to the state contest where she placed third in the Natural Resources category.
Hannah has attended Alumni Camp, State and National Convention, Made For Excellence Leadership Conference, Advanced Leadership Development Conference, Central District Chapter Officer Leadership Conference, AFR Leadership Summit, and awarded a scholarship to attend the Washington Leadership Conference.
Hannah has always had a deep love for the FFA and the many opportunities it has given her through high school and the many ways it will benefit her in her future career choice.
She believes it’s more than an organization but a way of life. Hannah has never been afraid to fail, and that is a main reason she has been so successful in the FFA.
Other than FFA, Hannah is active in FCA, NHS, cheerleading, Student Council, yearbook, band, and 4-H. She also works at Blue Daisy Flowers & Gifts in Elmore City.
After graduation, Hannah plans to attend Oklahoma State University and major in agribusiness.
