Grant Norfleet, senior agricultural education major, was selected to serve as the National FFA Secretary at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana, Nov. 1 -4.
Each year, the National FFA Organization selects six student members to represent the organization as a national FFA officer.
The primary responsibility of a national officer is to serve the organization in local, state, national and international activities in a way that will inform, motivate and inspire FFA members, advisors, state staff, teachers and others to achieve the mission, strategies and core goals of the organization.
National officers dedicate one year of service with the organization. The time is spent representing student membership during meetings with the National FFA Board of Directors, facilitating workshops that bring leadership and knowledge to FFA members, delivering motivational speeches and serving as advocates for FFA on a global scale.
Norfleet was selected by a committee of FFA members from across the nation during a rigorous interview process. Read more about Norfleet’s CAFNR experience and journey to national FFA office here.
