Oologah’s Emma Lewellen – FFA Spotlight Presented By Oklahoma Ag Credit

The Oologah FFA Spotlight is shining on Emma Lewellen, a senior at the high school. Saying Lewellen is involved in the FFA program at Oologah would be a drastic understatement.

For starters Lewellen is in her second year as the Chapter President, which means she has a lot of responsibility.

“Most of my responsibilities includes overseeing meetings and committees, she also helps organize events and is a leader for the program,” said Lewellen.

Lewellen has been very successful competing in the Agri Science Research Fair. She has competed for four years, winning state three times, qualifying for nationals three times and placing fifth nationally in 2019. 

Lewellen also shows pigs and sheep. Recently she won Grand Champion Breeding Ewe at the Rogers County Fair. Emma has won several contests for public speaking including winning regionals every year, twice in two divisions and has qualified for state once.

Emma and the Ag issues team also won state and qualified for nationals in Indianapolis in October. The team’s performance earned them a top 25 ranking.

Community service is also something that Lewellen is passionate about. Emma spends time volunteering for Tenaciously Teal, a program that provides cancer care packages. She also volunteers at local food banks and serves at banquets.

Lewellen also does excellent in the classroom with a 3.98 GPA and has taken several concurrent enrollment classes. She competes in tennis and is a member of student council, National Honor Society and National Technical Honor Society. After high school she plans on attending the University of Arkansas where she hopes to earn her master’s in chemical engineering in just four years.
