The Purcell FFA chapter was represented at the 46th annual Oklahoma FFA Alumni Leadership Camp at the Tulakogee Conference Center on Fort Gibson Lake near Wagoner, Okla.

More than 1,600 FFA members from over 300 Oklahoma FFA chapters registered and

attended one of four 3 1/2-day sessions July 1-14, 2018. Those that present included

Anoli Billy, Cecilya Johnson, Alyssa Bumpass, Carson Culp, and Kaylee Evans.


The 2018 camp engaged FFA members in fun-filled, action-packed activities focused

on personal, team and service leadership.

I asked a few of the FFA members that attended  “How was your experience at Alumni Camp?” “My experience at Alumni Camp was life changing and I had an amazing time!” said Anoli Billy. Kaylee Evans responded enthusiastically “My experience was great I loved every second. Except for the waking up early part.”

I also asked “Would you encourage other FFA members to go?” Cecilya Johnson responded with “I would definitely encourage other FFA members to go, it was one of the best experiences of my life.”

Special presenters were kick-off speaker Bill Cordes, Kansas; keynote speaker and

magician, Brad Barton, Utah; and hypnotist Dr. Al Snyder, Wisconsin.

The leadership camp is presented by the Oklahoma FFA Alumni Association with

corporate financial sponsorship provided by Sonic – America’s Drive-In, Trusted Choice

Independent Insurance Agents and Lopez Foods.


The FFA and FFA Alumni are an integral part of the agricultural education division

within the Oklahoma CareerTech System. The primary aim of the Oklahoma FFA Alumni

Association is to provide a strong, efficient statewide organization to promote, serve and support

agricultural education and the FFA. For more information visit
