Woodward High School’s Lily Luckett was in the eighth grade when she first got involved in FFA. Now a sophomore, Luckett has enjoyed many things about the FFA chapter at Woodward High School and the events she has attended since joining.
“I first got involved in FFA in 8th grade, so this is my third year. My parents encouraged me to get involved to benefit my future,” said Luckett. “I enjoy the friendships that I have made and learning to show my livestock.”
In the ring, Luckett enjoys showing her doe goats and being part of the opening and closing ceremonies.
“The last two years I was involved in opening and closing ceremonies and this year I’m in speech and I show doe goats,” said Luckett.
The sophomore is also a member of the softball, basketball and soccer teams and is in National Honor Society.
Luckett also said she loves playing sports and being a student-athlete at Woodward High School.
“I love the friendships and being a part of a great program. I am also on the softball and basketball team,” said Luckett. “I love how we all work together to achieve success. Everyone does their part and knows their role.”
After high school, Luckett said she would like to pursue a career in dental hygiene.
Luckett offers this advice to anyone considering the FFA.
“I would encourage them to get involved because there are so many aspects to it that anyone can benefit from FFA. They will gain life skills that will help shape their future as well as gaining lifelong friendships,” said Luckett.
The sophomore also gave credit to her mother. “My mom has been the biggest influence because she is always my biggest fan and supports me in whatever I choose. She always encourages me to do my best but most importantly to always be kind and show love and grace to others.”
