American Farmers & Ranchers Announces 2012-2013 Youth Advisory Council



American Farmers & Ranchers (AFR) announced its 2012-2013 Youth Advisory Council at the organization’s annual Senior Leadership Summit Banquet Aug. 1.

The Council consists of high school juniors and seniors from across the state. Members of the 2012-2013 Council are Taylor Green, Wellston; Gatlin Squires, Kingfisher; Whitney Wilkinson, Cement; Desiree Masterson, Spiro; and Chance Imhoff, Prague.

Council members participate in agriculture-based service projects throughout the year, such as the upcoming Septemberfest event on Sept. 8. The event will mark the beginning of the Council’s one-year term of service. Council members also assist in planning many of AFR’s youth programs, facilitate AFR events and act as mentors for younger Oklahoma youth.

“AFR is proud to invest in the future of Oklahoma through these young people,” said AFR President Terry Detrick. “Our Leadership Summit and the AFR Youth Council demonstrate that investment across Oklahoma.”

The AFR Youth Advisory Council is selected at AFR’s annual Senior Leadership Summit. The selection process includes a written application, an interview conducted by a panel of AFR members and leadership professionals, and a speech given in front of the council’s peers. The speech results in a popular vote by students attending Summit, allowing all attendees to be involved in the selection process.

AFR Senior Leadership Summit develops leadership tools that will prepare high school youth to set and achieve short- and long-term goals. The theme for this year’s Summit was “Actions Speak Louder than Words.” Attendees were encouraged to become involved in their communities and in the lives of others through team-building and cooperation exercises.

American Farmers & Ranchers was established in 1905, and is headquartered in Oklahoma City. AFR is actively supportive of Oklahoma’s agricultural industry and rural population, and provides educational, legislative, and cooperative programs across the state. AFR also provides insurance products statewide, and is recognized as a leading domestic insurance carrier in the state of Oklahoma.
