Ridge Hughbanks Named to the 2018-19 National Officer Team of the FFA The immediate Past President of the Oklahoma FFA Association, Ridge Hughbanks of the Alva, Oklahoma FFA, heard his name called by the Chairman of the National FFA Officer Nominating Committee- nominating the Oklahoma State Univesity Student to take on the same job that was given a year ago to another Oklahoman, Piper Merritt. Hughbanks will join with students from California, Louisiana, Michigan, Alabama and Oregon who have been elected by delegates throughout the United States to serve on the 2018-19 National FFA Officer team.

Luke O’Leary, an agricultural leadership and development major at Texas A&M University, was elected national president.

Layni LeBlanc, an animal science – science and technology major at Louisiana State University, was elected national secretary.

Adrian Schunk, a communications major at Michigan State University, was elected eastern region vice president.

Jordan Stowe, an agriscience education major at Auburn University, was elected southern region vice president.

Shea Booster, an agricultural business management major at Oregon State University, was elected western region vice president.

Each year at the National FFA Convention & Expo, six students are elected by delegates to represent the organization as national officers. Delegates elect a president, secretary, and vice presidents representing the central, southern, eastern, and western regions of the country.

National officers commit to a year of service to the National FFA Organization. Each officer travels more than 100,000 national and international miles to interact with business and industry leaders, thousands of FFA members and teachers, corporate sponsors, government and education officials, state FFA leaders, the general public, and more. The team will lead personal growth and leadership training conferences for FFA members throughout the country and help set policies that will guide the future of FFA and promote agricultural literacy.

On Friday, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays sat down with Ridge Hughbanks to talk about the selection process and what his dreams were if he heard his name called on Saturday afternoon. Listen to Ron and Ridge from Indianapolis by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.
