FFA National Secretary Pt 2

I’m Bob Larson. Oregon State agricultural business management major, Kourtney Lehman was elected National FFA secretary last week, one of six students chosen each year to represent the organization as national officers.

The Baker City resident says her family has been her biggest supporters …

LEHMAN … “Before I left here, my dad always told me just to be myself, that I am enough because of the person I am. He said, Kourt, if you walk in those interviews and they don’t like you for who you are, then that’s okay because you’re enough through the person you were created to be, and that’s what you really have to focus on. And, that’s what I’d offer every FFA member is, we all have little things that make us who we are, we have strengths, we have weaknesses, but we’re enough.”

And what’s she looking forward to most from her new post?

LEHMAN … “I’m really excited for the travel. I grew up in a small town in Eastern Oregon so I’m excited to see what this world has to offer, both in terms of agriculture and just the culture of people what their homes and their experiences are like and how they can use that to make the world a better place.”

And, Lehman says after this …

LEHMAN … “Head back to school to finish up my major in agricultural business management and then, at this time, I intend to go to law school to pursue ag law. It’s my hope to fight for agriculturalists in the court room or trading policies that allow us to do our job more efficiently at feeding and clothing the world.”

Each year National FFA delegates elect a president, secretary, and 4 vice presidents representing the central, southern, eastern, and western regions of the country.

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to more than 700,000 students in more than 8,600 local FFA chapters.
