During the recent 91st National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis, students from Alabama, California, Louisiana, Michigan, Oklahoma and Oregon were elected by delegates from throughout the U.S. to serve on the 2018-19 National FFA Officer team.
First representing the Southeast, Jordan Stowe of Alabama, an agriscience education major at Auburn University, was elected southern region vice president. But it was Luke O’Leary from California, an agricultural leadership and development major at Texas A&M University, who was elected as national president. While serving last year as California State FFA President, O’Leary talked with AgNet Media’s Taylor Hillman about the important of ag education and how it shapes teenagers lives.
More about the new officers can be found on the National FFA website.
