AARP Oklahoma Honors FFA Chapter of Excellence Winners

AARP Oklahoma is recognizing some of the Oklahoma FFA’s best and brightest chapters and students with a video, which launched on AARP social media on April 20. The video features 10 Oklahoma FFA chapters that have achieved Model of Excellence recognition by the FFA. Model of Excellence chapters recognized include Burns Flat-Dill City, Colcord, Elgin, Fairview, Howe, Oologah, Owasso, Perkins-Tryon, Stillwater, and Tulsa-Webster.

Selection for the Model of Excellence honor is based on the National FFA Three-Star application judging procedure, which was completed in June 2017. Chapters will be officially recognized at the Oklahoma FFA State Convention on May 1, 2018 in Oklahoma City. AARP Oklahoma State Director Sean Voskuhl will present the awards during the ceremony.

“AARP Oklahoma applauds these Model of Excellence chapters for building our Oklahoma communities, strengthening agriculture and developing student leaders,” said Voskuhl. “These chapters create livable communities which create happier, healthier residents of every age and in all life stages. We look forward to honoring each of them at the May FFA State Convention.”
