Officers of the Eufaula FFA chapter participated in the 2021 Oklahoma FFA Chapter Officer Leadership Training conference on September 15 at Glenpool. Eight state FFA officers planned and conducted this year’s conference based on the theme, “Lead Up.” Elected officers from each of the 88 high school FFA chapters in the Northeast area attended the conference, which equipped each student with leadership tools that focused on specific officer duties and leading when one is unsure what to do. 

Eufaula FFA officers for 2021-22 attending the conference are Makenzie McIntosh (President), Tyler Lee ((Vice President), Caleigh Rippy (Secretary), Eden Gray (Treasurer), Allison Cook (Reporter) and Jaycie Kiker (Sentinel).


The Eufaula High School Band has been selected to be an honor group at the 2022 OKMEA Music Educators Association Conference and will perform on January 20, 2022 at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center.

“This is a phenomenal honor as the bands picked range from middle school all the way through college groups,” said Rusty Helms, director of bands. “This is a once in a lifetime event and opportunity.”
