Ed itorial

FFAers and 4-hers listen up. It’s fall fair time. Our industry needs you. I attended a funeral recently and while there met many long-distance relatives whom were 30 years old and younger. Teenage kids ,moms and dads, and urban parents were in attendance. Two full generations who had traveled to Northwest Oklahoma for a great grandmother’s funeral. Their roots went back to the farm, but they were clueless about any agriculture. They knew nothing about the livestock industry . They knew nothing about the grain industry. They had seen some cows on the road on their way from the Oklahoma City airport. Our discussion with them was enlightening and almost scary. These were educated people, junior high and high school kids, that knew nothing about where their meat came from or even the crops that we grew in Oklahoma. Guys, this is where you come in. At the fair this fall, you are their window to the ag world. As people like I just explained stroll by your pens, we need to look up from our phones and let them pet our animals. They will have questions and you know all the answers. You are smart and you are educated in agriculture, and they are not. They will be excited, and their kids are excited to talk with you about your project. This is so important because these are the voters, these are the future leaders, these are the largest percent of America’s population that will be making the decisions for our future. We are the minority. Yes, we are strong, but the urban and suburban voters are the numbers. They are also the consumers of our products. You can make a difference, you are their know ledge about agriculture. I challenge you guys because you guys are good. You know agriculture, you are the window to the world of agriculture. The agriculture world as we know it is changing rapidly. What consumers see and read depends on you. They want to learn; they are smart; they just don’t know. Let’s teach them. It’s your job!

By Bailey Matlock, Cement, Oklahoma I had the pleasure to attend McPeak’s Be a Champ Cattle and Lamb Camp for the last three years. Since it’s first year in 1982, Be a Champ has brought youth together from across the country for a one of a kind experience in learning how to care for their show projects. The camp is located on the beautiful campus of Conner’s State University in Warner, OK, which hosts three sessions of cattle camp and one session of lamb camp. This camp has become a staple in my summer adventures and I can’t wait to go back each year. How cool is it that my show calf gets to come to summer camp too?! The first year my parents dropped me off at camp I didn’t know what to expect. I was just a nine-year-old girl who didn’t know much about cattle, but that was the point. I had to figure it out; and I did. The camp staff showed me exactly what I was supposed to do and then turned me loose to do it on my own. This hands-on-experience was priceless. So why is this camp so successful? That’s simple. It’s the staff. Jerry and Veda McPeak, or as the campers call them, Coach and Mrs. Veda, are the heart of the camp and they have built a program that gets results. It’s a family event; their children and grandchildren are present at the camp and put in a good day’s work each day alongside the instructors who are like family. The instructors return every summer to guide kids in showmanship, animal care, and fitting. I love showing up to camp and seeing familiar faces; it feels like family. I received one-on-one instruction in showmanship and sportsmanship. The instructors are well versed on the ins and outs of what goes on in the show ring. They also guided my partner and me in fitting. When it was my turn to actually use the clippers I was nervous about messing up. My Page 8 - September 2021

instructor told me not to worry, he could help me with fixing mistakes too! By the end of camp my partner and I prepared our heifers for the show ring from start to finish all by ourselves; and I think the back legs looked pretty good! Of course this camp has all the makings of a fun summer camp. We stayed in the college dorms, enjoyed the pool, and made lots of new friends. We went home completely exhausted but as soon as we hit I-40

Ag Youth Magazine - Braggin’ on Kids for 34 Years!

West my sister and I were already making plans to return the next summer. The motto of the camp is “Think Like a Champ. Act Like a Champ. Be a Champ.” This motto definitely sets the tone for the camp. If you put in the work you can be a champ. So be on the lookout for information about the 2022 Be A Champ Cattle and Lamb Camp. And who knows, I might see you at camp next year. agyouth.com

& Papa Hi guys! It’s me, Trenton. This summer I decided to do something new for my 4-H project. My Mom and Papa had to talk me into it. It was my first time to plan an event. It would be an exciting fishing day camp. We had 16 kids show up. The first thing we did at camp was to play a name game to get to know everyone. The game involved toilet paper. The kids tore off how much toilet paper that they would need that day. Then they had to share something about themselves with the group for each square. Our first activity was what the different baits were and how to use them. We had hard lures and soft plastic lures plus live bait of many kinds. Most all of our bait was donated by Grit and Grace Outdoor, so if you are in Newkirk make sure and stop by and buy some bait at their store. Cut Throat Jig Company in Cordell also donated soft baits for the camp. The second thing we did was learn how to cast. We had enough poles for everybody. Most kids had never casted before. This practice helped us prepare to go fish-

Page 16 - September 2021

ing. We caught a few and had a lot of fish take our bait. The small duck pond at Lake Ponca worked really well. When we came back from fishing, my Aunt Jenny with Kay County Healthy Living showed us how to make trail mix for a snack. Farm Bureau provided us with our drinks. The last thing we did at the workshop was to spread out in teams and pick up any trash we could find in the area as a community service project. The kids were great, my help was great and we had a great time. We had a really good time and the weather was great. Now on to fall and September 1st. It’s time to go hunting. Dove season will be here!

Hey Papa!

WHAt was your first gun? It was a pump daisy BB gun that I wore completely out!

Eric Quisenberry receiving the Star in Agribusiness Award from past President Lexi Kelln, at the 2021 Shattuck FFA Banquet

Page 22 - September 2021

By Emmie Swanson, Shattuck FFA Reporter In May, Eric Quisenberry from Shattuck was officially chosen for the 2021-2022 Oklahoma Agriculture Youth Council. The council, created by Secretary of Ag, Blayne Arthur, consists of 20 seniors from across the state. It was established as a means of professional development for future agricultural leaders in Oklahoma. Quisenberry completed the extensive application process which included a resume, transcript, and essay submissions, as well as an interview, and a video submission. Eric, along with his fellow council members, will spend the next year visiting Oklahoma agricultural organizations, will learn about the legislative processes involved in agriculture, shadow industry professionals, and develop his own agricultural professional skills. The official mission statement of the Oklahoma Agriculture Youth Council is, “to develop future agriculture leaders in Oklahoma through professional development, industry exposure and experiential learning.” Eric is, without a doubt, a future leader in agriculture, and Shattuck FFA is proud to have him represent our community and school in this prestigious opportunity.

By Makinze Smith Waynoka FFA Reporter The Waynoka FFA hosted the “Best of The Best’’ Reason Camp from Thursday, May 20, to Saturday, May 22.. During this time there were many classes of Hereford heifers, Charolais heifers, commercial heifers, performance bulls, market hogs, and market sheep evaluated. FFA and 4-H livestock judging teams traveled from Alva, Fairview, Shattuck, Kingfisher, Mooreland, and Waynoka to attend. On Thursday, the Redlands Community College judging coach, Spencer Scotten, helped with formatting reasons and then listened to the students’ sets. On Friday, we had the Kingfisher ag teacher, Tyler Gradert, help the students with cattle EPD. On Saturday, Waynoka’s Chad Blocker, helped the kids with pig EPD. EPD is short for expected progeny differences. EPD values are calculated based on data submitted by producers to breed associations from an animal’s actual performance, performance of progeny, performance of other

Page 24 - September 2021

relatives, and genomic data. Therefore, EPD are used to make sure the producer will have top notch livestock to expand their herd adequately. In addition, Todd Blocker, Brooke Ferguson, and Dexter Small helped the 4-H participants with filling out scantrons, writing and memorizing reasons. The focus for the younger attendees was to work on building a set of reasons and having terminology to use. They gave their reasons to various ag teachers to help better their confidence and expand their reasons vocabulary. We appreciate all the students and ag teachers for coming and participating in our camp. Also, we would like to thank the following: the Bixler Ranch, McMurphy Farms, and the Redgate Cattle Company for providing cattle classes; Jimmy Davis for providing the sheep classes; and Jon Marc Holt and Troy Gosney for providing the hog classes. Plus, a big THANK YOU to our sponsors and volunteers for making this a successful event!

By Casyn Larman, Mulhall-Orlando FFA Reporter On March 25, 2020 the Oklahoma State School Board voted to close in-person learning for the remainder of the school year due to the spread of Covid-19. It was a time of much uncertainty and upheaval for thousands of students across the state, but for Mulhall-Orlando FFA Member, Brock Aldridge, it was also a beginning. Brock had been wanting to get some ducks of his own to raise at his family farm in Orlando, Oklahoma. In between his distance learning assignments, he researched his options and ultimately decided to get four Ancona ducklings. From these modest foundations, Ruffled Duck Acres was created. Brock was excited when he got his “Ladies” home and began to grow them. He had no original plans for them other than having ducks. However, as they grew and matured Brock realized he had some decisions to make, namely what to do with the eggs they started laying. Ancona ducks lay up to 300 eggs each year. Brock knew from his research that ducks were superior to chickens in many ways, and with backyard chickens being extremely popular, he decided to start a business that emphasized ducks and duck eggs. At about the same time he was entering eighth grade and becoming an FFA member who needed a Supervised Agricultural Experience. The timing was perfect for him to turn an interesting hobby into a business. He started with word of mouth sales and has recently expanded by starting a Facebook page that allows him to keep customers informed about his duck eggs and hatchlings availability. Brock now has 14 Ancona ducks and two Sebastopol geese. Ancona ducks are a rare breed of duck that comes in many color combinations, with black and white being the most common. They are also occasionally blue, lavender, Page 28 - September 2021

Lockdown: Continued from Page 28 lilac, chocolate or even rarely silver. Brock is extremely proud that with his last hatching he now has one of each color. One of the reasons he chose Ancona ducks is that they do not fly and are easier to herd. He says:\, “I have had some problems with predators, but it is better now.” The snowstorms and ice storms in the winter also presented challenges. He had to learn how to adjust their food to meet the increased nutritional demands and provide warm dry bedding areas. He and his dad have built a new pen and shelters to house the ducks and protect them. Currently, Brock and his flock at Ruffled Duck Acres sells eggs by the dozen weekly to local families who enjoy the higher nutritional value of duck eggs vs. chicken eggs. He also incubates and sells hatchlings every four to six weeks for families who want their own backyard ducks. Brock will not hatch over the winter but is still taking orders for hatches through the fall. He plans to start incubating and raising geese next spring and continuing to grow his flock for his own enjoyment and to meet the demands of his growing customer base. Page 30 - September 2021

Near the conclusion of the 4-H Roundup, the new state council officers were inducted. 2021-2022 State Council executive officers include as follows: Elizabeth Chamber, president; Carolyn Greenfield, vice president; Olivia Napier, secretary; Madison Nickels, reporter; and Madelyn Murphy, recreation leader. The 2021-2022 district representatives from the west include as follows: Summer Prince, Brance Barnett, and Emma Taylor. From the northeast: Colton Tripp, Abby Logan, and McKayla Hunt. From the southeast: Haven Hinton, Jenessa Dugger, and Murphy Peterson.

By Madison Nickels, State 4-H Reporter This July 4-H members from across the state gathered in a place they call home. Gallagher Iba Arena, which was originally named the 4-H and Student Activities Building, has been home to State 4-H Roundup for decades, and this year held the Centennial! When planning this article, the state council wanted to recognize those who have helped them in their 4-H career. As many 4-Hers know, they would not be as successful if not for their #1 supporters. For some this may be a family member; for others their extension educator might fall in that place. Let’s take a look at what the council members had to say. Madison Nickels says that she owes her success in her 4-H career to her extension educator/mother, Jessica Nickels. Madison states that Jessica always pushes her to do everything offered to her, whether that be contests, speeches, or county visits. Madison’s Nan is also a huge supporter and helps Madison in her main project areas, Fabrics and Fashions and Foods and Nutrition. Nan has helped Madison sew and bake since she was a little girl. Madison also mentioned her best friend, Summer Prince, as a big supporter. “No matter how crazy my idea may be, she is always ready to help in whatever way possible,” said Madison. Abby Logan credits her 4-H success to her educator Summer Leister. Over the years that she has been a part of Oklahoma 4-H, Summer has pushed her out of her comfort zone and challenged her to be the best person she can be. “Without Summer always making sure I am involved and putting in the effort, I wouldn’t be who I am today,” Abby said. Page 32 - September 2021

Carolyn Greenfield stated “I have had many supporters over my 4-H career. My family has always supported whatever I chose to do in 4-H, whether it was a demonstration or running for a leadership position! My educator, Summer Leister, has always encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. Last but not least, my 4-H family. I found more than just friendships in 4-H, I found a family. One that is always encouraging me and pushing me towards success.” State President Elizabeth Chambers stated, “My main 4-H supporter is my mom, Kathryn Chambers! Since the beginning of my 4-H career, she has pushed me to be better every day, and make every minute count! She has encouraged me, helped me, and believed in myself! My mom has spent hours driving me to different 4-H activities and events, and has given me resources to grow my project areas and community service projects! Without my mom’s support, I would not be where I am today!” Colton Tripp credited his 4-H success to his family. “Whether that is driving me places, or helping me late at night in the pig barn, they have always been my biggest supporters no matter what. Liz Nicholson, my county educator, is my personal cheerleader, she is always by my side at everything, encouraging me all along the way. Lastly, all of the lifelong friends I have made through Oklahoma 4-H as we encourage each other at contests, hang out at roundup, they are always there no matter what!” Olivia Napier says “My greatest supporter would have to be my family. Whether it is wanting to run for state office

workshops as possible, they will help get me there. Without my family, achieving my dreams would be near impossible.” Emma Taylor expressed, “My biggest supporters will always be my family, but specifically my older sisters. Sarah is always going to be the one crying and

cheering me on while I’m on stage, and I can always count on Hannah giving me a high five after the fact. Kassie Junghanns, my old educator, is the person who has pushed me to where I am, and I’ll forever be grateful to her. My closest friends will support me endlessly; I could never thank them enough.” McKayla Hunt credits her 4-H success to her parents. “My parents have always had my back through any new adventures in my 4-H career, whether that be making sure I was up at 2 a.m. to go on a tag-along county visit or staying up late making sure we didn’t forget anything while loading the trailer for cattle shows.” Madelyn Murphy would like to thank her mother, Joni Murphy, for her support throughout her short 4-H career. “My mom was surprised to see my interest in 4-H blossom as quickly as it did, and with that, she offered 100% support and love. She wants nothing but the best for me and offers everything she can do so that I can reach my dreams. I am so, so thankful for my wonderful mother and her support.” Jenessa Dugger expressed her mom, Michele, as her biggest supporter. “Through my years in 4-H no matter how small or big my goals were my mom was always there helping me and encouraging me to achieve them. With her patient teaching manner and “You can do it!” mentality, my mom is the person who has most inspired me. She is my greatest teacher, my biggest supporter, my best friend, and I would not be the person I am today if not for her loving guidance.” Brance Barnett says “I have been blessed by God with two wonderful parents that support all of my dreams and aspirations, but it takes a village to raise a child. My village of supporters is diverse and strong.” “My 4-H role model is my older sister. She joined 4-H at a later age and still reached so many of her goals. She became a State 4-H Ambassador, and she is the person who inspires me to be the best version of myself!” said Murphy Peterson. agyouth.com

Oklahoma FFA Members Develop Communication Skills at OKFB FFA Reporters Conference Nearly 60 FFA members from across the state attended Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s 2021 FFA Reporters Conference held Thursday, July 15 at Redlands Community College in El Reno, Oklahoma. Designed to teach chapter FFA reporters how to promote FFA in their communities, the conference featured a variety of sessions to help students develop skills and knowledge in communications practices including photography and videography, social media, writing and graphic design. “As the percentage of Oklahomans involved in agriculture continues to dwindle, the need grows for a new generation of leaders to help tell the wonderful stories of our industry,” said Rodd Moesel, OKFB president. “We’re proud to offer these students a chance to learn and grow their communications skills to not only promote FFA and agricultural education, but also advocate for our state’s incredible farmers and ranchers.” Conference workshops were taught by leading agricultural communications professionals including Chancey Hanson, director of communications for Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association; Lacey Newlin, field editor for the High Plains Journal; Samantha Siler, director of communications and marketing for the Oklahoma State University Ferguson College of Agriculture; Dr. Ruth Inman, associate professor of agricultural communications and digital media state extension specialist for OSU; and Dustin Mielke, vice president of communications and

By Rylee Hrbacek, Anadarko FFA President Anadarko FFA traveled to Alva, Oklahoma, on July 6, for Alva FFA’s First Ever Leadership Day. We did many activities that represented obstacles in our chapter that we deal with on a daily basis. We learned valuable team skills such as communication, teamwork, listening, and understanding. We worked in both small and large groups. In our small groups,we discussed some of the struggles we have in our chapter and learned how to overcome them. It was helpful hearing everyone’s perspectives and what they do to make their chapters stronger. In our large groups, we did many team building activities such as lining up and seeing how fast we could get a pool noodle from one side of the room to the other with everyone having to touch it. Overall, we came home with many leadership skills that we can incorporate into our chapter.

By Lucki Greenwood, Stigler FFA Reporter Stigler FFA held its annual back-toschool bash on August 9. Vice President Gracie Fenton planned out the event, which included a goat roping and cornhole tournament at the Stigler Round-Up Club. The goat roping winners Levi Wendlandt, junior, and Cole Hamlin, sophomore. The winners in the cornhole tournament were: first-place team juniors Morgan Jones and Matthew Cowen, second place freshmen Dakota Drewry and Brandon Henderson, third-place team Cambry Boyles and Daylee Sloan. The FFA members said that they had fun and are ready to participate in another goat roping. The FFA meetings allow the underclassmen and upperclassmen the opportunity to get to know each other better. Stigler FFA has meetings every month for its members. Each month an FFA officer is in charge of planning the event. The meetings always include food, games, and fun. Parents are always invited to attend the meetings as well. We want to say a big thank you to Steven Quick for allowing us to use the Round-Up Club and host our meeting there, Justin Price for helping us set the roping up and bringing the ropes and the stake for the goats, Billy Greenwood and Kristy Wilson for helping run the goat roping and the books, Jennifer Fenton

for cooking the walking tacos, Beau Barger, Kevin Fenton and Luke Fenton for working the goat roping event. Stigler FFA would also like to thank all the parents and people who just showed up and supported the FFA members. The primary aim of the Stigler FFA Chapter is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success.

M-O FFA Officers attend Conference

By Kale Currier, Fargo-Gage FFA Reporter The Fargo-Gage FFA Officers (left to right: Allyson Navarro, Hope Walton, Kinsley Schneider, Rowdy Rinehart, Kale Currier and Kellen Allenbach) went to Stillwater for a two-day Officer Retreat. We met with two Oklahoma State Officers, Braden Heisler and Quetta Woodall. Braden and Quetta helped us set our goals and plan our Program of Activities (POA). We also talked about ideas to get more members involved. Wednesday, we headed to the OSU Challenge Course where we met up with the Fargo-Gage BPA Officers. We did several team building activities which

Page 44 - September 2021

made us have to communicate and work efficiently as a team to get the shapes, puzzle, or maze completed. Then we got to head to the ropes course. We got all harnessed up and headed up the stairs to go on any desired rope course level and element we wanted to complete with our comfort. Everyone had a blast and we can’t wait to show you more fun events we have planned. Check out Fargo FFA on Facebook to find information on upcoming events.

By Casyn Larman, Mulhall-Orlando FFA Reporter Two members of the Mulhall–Orlando FFA Chapter, President Baylee Brown and Vice-President KayLea Taylor, were chosen to attend the Oklahoma Leadership Conference along with 58 other FFA members from across the state. The Oklahoma FFA Association hosted this conference from May 31-June 4 in place of the canceled 2021 Washington Leadership Conference. These 60 FFA members were selected to receive the 2021 Oklahoma Leadership Conference Scholarship which allowed the recipients to experience a week full of leadership activities. The FFA members stayed at the Omni hotel in Oklahoma City where they attended nightly sessions about leadership and community service. In addition, the attendees applied their new knowledge through participation in various activities. For community service, they pulled weeds at the Oklahoma City Zoo. They toured businesses and visited with leaders at the Blue & Gold Sausage factory, as well as Express Ranch. They also learned about leadership by visiting the State Capital and the Oklahoma State Department of Agriculture where they ate lunch with the Oklahoma State Secretary of Agriculture Blaine Arthur. Baylee said “I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to attend OLC! Spending time with 60 other kids who are just as passionate about this organization as I am was such an amazing experience!” Throughout the conference Baylee and KayLea exemplified the FFA motto of “Learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live, living to serve.”

Adapted from press releases written by Trisha Gedon, OSU When you look around the Oklahoma State University campus, you’ll see many beautifully landscaped flowerbeds, lush green spaces and wonderful Georgian architecture. And, not surprisingly, you’ll see a lot of orange – a lot of orange. But for a few days every July, the dominant color on campus is green – 4-H green. For 100 years, Oklahoma 4-H Youth Development members have been gathering on the campus of this land-grant university to take part in State 4-H Roundup, the largest event 4-H has on the state level. While many things about Roundup have changed over a century, Page 46 - September 2021

there are some things that remain steadfast. Delegates make new friends, compete in contests, participate in educational workshops, recognize the achievements of club members and make memories that will last a lifetime. While most of these activities take place in the various air-conditioned buildings on campus, that obviously wasn’t the case in the early days. Events took place under large tents on the campus lawn between Hanner Hall and Thatcher Hall. There was no building on campus big enough to hold the 1,500 or so delegates. Sometime in the early to mid-1930s, the Oklahoma weather showed its true colors and blew down the tents. Fortunately,

no one was seriously hurt. Along this same time, then Oklahoma A&M College students had outgrown their classroom space and had resorted to having classes in tents on the lawn. In an effort to meet the needs of the space crisis on campus, Oklahoma legislators were asked to review the requested appropriations for several buildings on campus. One request in particular was for a field house that would be called the 4-H Club Building. Then-representative Sam Whitaker of Stephens County said at the time, “Calling it the 4-H Club Building is just a way to get you to vote for it. 4-H members won’t use it except once or twice a year. The rest of the time it would agyouth.com

be used for other student activities and basketball games.” Funding was approved and the 4-H Club Building was built. It was officially dedicated during State 4-H Roundup, June 1, 1939. That same building still stands on campus today and is known as Gallagher-Iba Arena, one of the rowdiest arenas in the Big XII. And, it still is used by 4-H’ers for State 4-H Roundup every year. Fast forward to 2021 and club members around the state are preparing to make their trek to campus to participate in the 100th State 4-H Roundup. In keeping with tradition, Roundup serves as a time to recognize the hard work and achievements of club members

of the last year. Most any club member can attest to the challenges of compiling their record books on their project areas. And for some, that work is rewarded during the Honor Night Assembly when state record book project winners are announced. Lincoln County 4-H’er Lilyana Sestak and Tillman County 4-H’er Rachel Mitchell were inducted into the Oklahoma 4-H Hall of Fame at the 100th State 4-H Roundup. Lilyana Sestak was taking part in 4-H events long before she was old enough to be an official member, but that’s what happens when your dad is the local Oklahoma State University Extension 4-H educator. Once she officially became a Cloverbud, she knew her possibilities were limitless but within reach — and she hasn’t slowed down since then. One of those many possibilities became a reality when she was inducted into the Oklahoma 4-H Hall of Fame. “When I got the call that I’d won, it was just surreal,” said Lilyana, who is a member of the Prague 4-H Club. “I broke out in tears. I just feel so honored to be recognized like this.” Born into a farming and ranching family, Lilyana assumed she would participate in 4-H livestock projects, which she has, but her true passion is in the foods project. As much as she enjoyed helping with the family’s cattle, she was most at home in the kitchen with her grandmother, perfecting all kinds of recipes, including those that helped her learn more about her Czech heritage. Her skills in the kitchen were instrumental in being named a food science state record book winner. Community service is a big part of the Oklahoma 4-H Youth Development program, and is at the core of one of Lilyana’s projects. Through her work with an organization called Stamp Out Starvation, which delivers prepackaged meals throughout the world, Lilyana researched to see if Oklahoma offered a similar program. Finding nothing, she developed her own project called Food for Family to target the hungry in her state. She has applied for and received Page 48 - September 2021

(Photo by Todd Johnson, OSU Agricultural Communications Services) grants and continues working toward seeing this dream become a reality. When asked what she enjoys most about being involved in 4-H, Lilyana is quick to answer. “4-H teaches us not just life skills, but social and business skills, too. I’ve learned to be professional and business like,” she said. “These are things that will help me in the future. I also enjoy all of the relationships I’ve developed in 4-H. This is one of the few organizations that helps us branch out of our community, county and state because of all the opportunities we have across the country. I’ve made so many friends from all over the United States because of conferences I’ve attended through 4-H.” Although the 4-H program is known for its four H’s — head, heart, hands and health — Lilyana said there’s a fifth H for her — home. “This program has been with me since birth. It’s a home not only for me

Ag Youth Magazine - Braggin’ on Kids for 34 Years!

but for thousands of others. My dad has served as a father figure not only to his own family, but for many kids involved in 4-H,” she said. “We care about you before you enroll in 4-H, and we care about you long after. We’re Oklahoma’s family and this is something I’m very passionate about.” Lilyana is a shining example of the 4-H motto “To Make the Best Better.” She is the daughter of Ross Sestak and Krista Ray. A 2021 graduate of Prague High School, she will attend OSU this fall to study biochemistry and molecular biology. She hopes to later attend the OSU Center for Health Sciences and earn a doctorate in osteopathic medicine and become a hand and foot surgeon. Oklahoma Ag Credit sponsors a $5,000 scholarship for Oklahoma 4-H Hall of Fame inductees. In addition to the Hall of Fame honors, Lilyana also was awarded the $1,200 Advanced Achievement project scholarship sponsored by agyouth.com


the Vernon and Ronda McKown Endowment; the $1,200 Larry D. Anderson Memorial Scholarship sponsored by the Larry D. Anderson Memorial; the $1,200 Hessell Memorial Scholarship in Public Speaking sponsored by the David Hessell Family; and the $2,000 Retta Miller Scholarship sponsored by the Retta Miller Endowment. Rachel Mitchell is the first 4-H’er from Tillman County to achieve this prestigious award. “It makes me feel very proud that I can represent Tillman County in this way,” Rachel said. “I’m proud to be a role model for kids.” An active 4-H’er for nine years, Rachel said her 4-H career began in fourth grade as a little girl who just wanted to fit in — looking up to the big kids in her club. Today, her role has changed and she’s the one teaching others about the positive impact 4-H can have on youth. When she joined the Frederick 4-H Club, she said there weren’t a lot of club members. One of her main projects has been to increase the membership in Tillman County. She said one way she’s helped do that is just by being more visible. “I talked to my friends about 4-H and we started doing community service projects. We’d get out and work in Frederick and let people see what we were doing and help them learn what 4-H is all about,” she said. “Our membership has really increased over the years.”

Rachel learned early in her 4-H career that she loved to help people, so being involved in community service projects was a natural fit. She can be found lending a hand at local events and attending workshops or meetings that involve helping her town of Frederick. She has been instrumental in organizing local club members to help with the Adopt-the-Block project, as well as helping clean up around the local museum. “The more people who get involved in 4-H help leads to more involved citizens, better leaders and people who will give back to their communities,” she said. It was through the childcare project area that Rachel became involved with Special Clovers Camp, where she served as a Clover Buddy for two years. Special Clovers Camp is a camp for 4-H members with special needs. Through her experiences as a Clover Buddy, she said she has learned more about children with special needs and developed more patience. This also is where the idea of becoming a state officer was born. “I was able to meet some of the state and district officers, and they talked to me about how much more 4-H had to offer outside of my county,” she said. She has since served as the southern West District vice president. She just completed a year as a West District representative on the state leadership council. She also has served as the West

District photographer, as well as county vice president. She has demonstrated her leadership and public speaking skills by leading a variety of workshops and presentations. She also has served as a delegate to Citizenship Washington Focus, a leadership development opportunity in Washington, D.C. She is a 2021 graduate of Frederick High School and will be attending Southwestern Oklahoma State University this fall to study elementary education. When she becomes a teacher, she plans to teach the Ag in the Classroom curriculum to her students to help them understand the importance of agriculture in Oklahoma. Teaching also will give her a chance to help younger children learn about all the great things the Oklahoma 4-H Youth Development program has to offer. “The 4-H program has taught me so many things that I wouldn’t have learned somewhere else. It has taught me the meaning of a good handshake, learning how to get out of my comfort zone and be more outgoing,” she said. “It has helped me find the things that I’m most passionate about while striving to meet my goals.” She is the daughter of Brian and Kayla Mitchell. Oklahoma Ag Credit sponsors a $5,000 scholarship for Oklahoma 4-H Hall of Fame inductees.
