At Poteau High School, Walker Snapp was named President of the Agriculture Program for the 2018-2019 school year. Walker has been attending Poteau High School for 4 years now.  

 

He’s been showing since his freshman year and recently he has showed in Idbell. He showed at the Big 8 Livestock Expo and he received two third places out of his class out of 10 or more and second place in a class of 11 or 12.

 

“It was a huge show,” Snapp said.

We interviewed Walker to ask him why he wanted to run for State Officer.

 

“I really wanted to run for state officer, because so many kids in FFA don’t understand what FFA can do for them and how it can benefit them, so I really just wanted to do it and show all the aspects of FFA and like make everyone feel welcome and show that there is more than just showing life stock.”

 

Walker has shown sheep ever since he has been in AG class.

 

“I actually only won showmanship one time,” Snapp says humbly.  “It is nothing I am the best at but it’s something I take a lot of pride in.”

 

Snapp holds the moment near and dear to his heart.

 

Walker fell into agricultural classes easily, following in the footsteps of several family members, and following his love for animals.

 

“I wanted to be in AG because I have heard people talk about FFA for a long time. I love animals; I love everything about the livestock industry so it was something I thought would fit me. I wasn’t absolutely 100 percent sure about it a first but when I walked in I fell in love.”

 

Walker Snapp’s love for FFA has inspired him to go after a dream of becoming a State Officer.  This is an honor he has worked hard to achieve, mastering speaking skills in the Ag program and meeting a lot of people.  

 

“So I mean [being chosen as a finalist] obviously was very exciting for me it was something I worked for 3 years,” Walker says in awe.  “It’s just an overwhelming feeling because to know that it’s a handful of select few individuals that make it it’s just a crazy, awesome achievement.”  

 

Walker is one of the top three finalists for this position.  If he wins, he will spend his first year at OSU traveling from chapter to chapter across the state working with students and promoting FFA.  The election will be held at State FFA convention in May.
