Miami’s Hanna Kinney - FFA Spotlight Presented By Oklahoma AgCredit Vinita
Miami High School sophomore Hanna Kinney is a member of student council and FFA. During her short time in FFA, Kinney has enjoyed many of the activities the club provides. She does not show animals, but she does participate in the horticultural side of fairs the group attends. “Going to a Halloween fair with my FFA chapter is my favorite memory from last year. Getting lost in the cornfield, racing go carts and being terrified by the people working there is something I will never forget from this school year,” said Kinney. “I love representing my school for everything that’s good about it. Everyone knows about something that’s not going well sometimes we need someone to bring the good that Miami offers to the forefront.”
Another aspect of FFA Kinney enjoys is the opportunity to work with younger students. “I love teaching kids about agriculture, when we work with the little ones and teach them I just get so excited and a sense of pride in FFA,” said Kinney.
FFA is a huge part of her life, but it’s not her only interest. “My favorite subject is definitely English because it’s what I’ve always been best at and comes the easiest to me. My favorite teacher is my FFA teacher Mrs. Adkinson, she just someone I know that if I’m having the worst day in the world or I just need to talk someone she’ll be there and happy to help. She’s also super supportive of my goals even if they’re not totally FFA related,” said Kinney.
During the outbreak Kinney has spent a lot of her time with her hands in the dirt. “Gardening! It sounds super lame but it’s really relaxing and rewarding to grow things,” said Kinney.
Her future plans include college where she may study business. Kinney wanted to send a message to her classmates as they close the book on 2019-20. “I am very interested in either attending Vanderbilt or Tulane and am undecided about my major. Maybe business,” said Kinney. “Congratulations seniors your exit was abrupt but we are just as proud of you as any other class.”
