The Alumni Camp Experience


They say that, “All Good Things Must Come to an End.” As I sit here, reading my Happy Grams and reflecting on the past week, I can’t help but think of all the memories made at the OKFFA Alumni Leadership Camp. Over the years, I’ve had the chance to witness so many incredible stories and work with so many Amazing SGLs, staff, and teammates. In my time, I’ve seen lives positively changed over a matter of days. I heard the message of YOGOWYPI and it provided me with a new Confidence in Life. I Lit off some Fireworks in a workshop to illustrate that Every person’s life was called to have an Explosive Impact on our World. I’ve seen Courage Develop right before my very eyes as members Conquered their Fears on the Ropes Course. Words can’t describe everything at Alumni Camp, because sometimes the greatest moments ever witnessed can never be expressed by our pen or speech, but felt by the Instant Power of the Experience. As my time at camp comes to a close, my only hope is that a difference was made and a life was Impacted. FFA members, You are an Inspiration! You are More than a Member! You are the Change this World needs! Never stop believing in your impact, because if this guy can make it, then anyone can πŸ™‚ Thank you Oklahoma FFA for the opportunity to be part of your lives! It was a Ride to Remember! πŸ™‚ Stay in Touch! And God Bless!
