Lomega’s Tate Ott – FFA Spotlight Presented By Oklahoma Ag Credit

The Lomega FFA Spotlight is on Tate Ott, a senior at the high school. Ott plays basketball and runs track and cross-country for the Raiders.
In the FFA program Ott does a little bit of everything. His main responsibility is serving as the Chapter President. “I just try to have good communication with the other officers and my ag teacher,” said Ott, “whenever events need to be planned, I do my best to stay on top of what needs to be done. Just trying to be a good mentor to the younger students and have a good impact on them.”

Ott also shows pigs and has had a lot of success. In 2017 he had the Champion York Gilt at the Tulsa State Fair. The in 2018 and 2019 he had premium sale cross breed barrows.

Tate is heavily involved in livestock judging as well. In 2019 he was the High Overall Individual at the Will Rogers Classic and was fifth overall at the Northwest District Contest. Lomega won first place at the Northwest District Contest.

Ott also shines in public speaking. In December he took first place at the State American Farmers and Ranchers contest. As a freshman he placed fourth at State for the FFA creed.

What drove Ott to be so involved in FFA was those close to him and the opportunities. “What got me so involved was just the support of my parents, my ag teacher and friends and family, just that there’s many great opportunities with this and it’s a great to enjoy high school and it’s had a great impact on my life,” said Ott.

Tate is also the President of the Student Council, a member of the Lomega Youth Action Council and serves on the American Famers and Ranchers Youth Advisory Council.
