Jalei Watts 

Warner High School

By Ember McElrath

A junior at Warner High School, Jalei Watts joined FFA in her eighth grade year. Jalei got involved in FFA because of her love for pigs, which started in her fifth grade year when she first started showing animals.

“I have grown up showing pigs,” said Jalei. “I have a passion for improving the genetics of the swine industry.”

Not only does she have a passion for animals, Jalei is also a member of the Cattle Grading Team, as well as her FFA chapter’s Vice President.

Over the past couple of years, FFA has given Jalei many things to cherish including some great leadership skills, but her favorite thing about FFA are those great friendships and memories that she has made.

“My favorite part has been being able to give my fellow FFA members the memories that will last a lifetime,” Jalei said.

This year Jalei has some great plans in store for her chapter.

“I am looking forward to growing our chapter,” said Jalei. “I have enjoyed planning activities that everyone will enjoy and creating a tremendous team environment.”

While Jalei is still a teenager, she is very driven to not waste any opportunity that she has been given.

“I am very passionate and appreciative of the opportunities that I have been given,” Jalei said. “While I make the time to spend with my family and at the church, my only other free time is spent with my pigs. I strive to make the most of every minute I am blessed with and not waste a second!”

After high school Jalei has no plans of leaving behind her FFA roots. She plans to judge livestock in college and continue learning more to help improve the industry.
