The state FFA officer team of the Oklahoma FFA Association will conduct their 2023 Goodwill Tour with a visit to the Marlow FFA Chapter, Thursday morning. They also will be visiting Central High prior to their stop in Marlow.
Four collegiate FFA leaders will make a stop at the local school to meet with FFA members, potential members, school administrators and community leaders.
“We never take the opportunity to influence Oklahoma’s youth lightly. During our chapter tours we hope to understand the unique factors that make every chapter
different and inspire their members to influence their community for the better,” said Braden Burns, state FFA president.
“During these visits, the state officer team wants to go beyond agriculture and leadership and take this chance to inspire students into action for the betterment of their lives and those around them,” Burns said.
Throughout the Goodwill Tour state officers will challenge FFA members to go all out in their passion for agriculture and leadership. A total of 62 chapters were
selected for the 2023 tour from the 366 total chapters in the state. Visiting the local chapter are Caleb Horne, northwest area vice president; Emily Beaner, state reporter; Jorja Scherler, southeast area vice president; and Presley Pullen, central area vice president.
