Minnesota FFA Organization Names State Officers


The Minnesota FFA Association is led by six state officers elected from the 40,000 School-Based Agricultural Education students in Minnesota. The six state officers and the president of each of Minnesota FFA's eight regions compose the Student Board of Directors. Together these 14 student officers lead the organization working with our boards to advance agriculture and education, promote food, fiber, and natural resources awareness and literacy, and provide premier leadership, personal growth, and career success to youth across the land of 10,000 lakes.

Representing our area as the new Region VIII President is Cameron Addington of the Cannon Falls FFA chapter.
