  Northwest Area VP
Tate Ott

My name is Tate Ott, and I am honored to be serving as the 2020-21 Northwest Area vice president.

I was raised in the rural community of Ames, Oklahoma. I am the son of John and Debra Ott and have a younger brother, Kelby, and a younger sister, Hadley. I am a fifth generation farmer. Our farm consists of a small cow-calf operation and a few hundred acres of wheat.

From first grade through my freshman year I attended school at Ringwood, and it was there where I enrolled in my first agricultural education class and developed my love for the FFA organization. I officially had Will Bunt as my ag instructor even though he had been mentoring me for years. I finished my high school career at Lomega with Laramie Lopp as my ag Instructor. 

I experiences my first State FFA Convention in eighth grade. Watching the arena erupt with excitement as the state officers ran through the tunnel helped fuel my passion even more for FFA. During my time as an FFA member, my SAE consisted of exhibiting swine and marketing bratwurst, hot links and pork burgers made from my leftover show pigs. I was also involved in judging livestock and competing in the prepared public speaking contests.

Participating in numerous FFA activities, I saw firsthand the impact the state officers made on students’ lives. My favorite memory as an FFA member was giving the fourth paragraph of the FFA Creed at the State FFA Convention. It was by far the coolest experience I have ever had. It has been an unbelievable ride as an FFA member, and I would not trade it for the world. I am very thankful for this amazing organization I call home, as well as my family and the mentors that helped me get to where I am today.

This fall I plan to attend Oklahoma State University with a major in agricultural education. I hope to come back to western Oklahoma as an agricultural education instructor.
