Indian Creek student among those vying for Indiana FFA leadership positions

An Indian Creek student is one of 12 in the state who are in the running to serve as an Indiana FFA state officer for the upcoming year.

Garrett Bolin of Indian Creek High School will join 11 others for a week of engagement during the 95th Indiana FFA Convention in West Lafayette next week. Seven individuals will be selected to fulfill the roles of president, secretary, Northern Region vice president, Southern Region vice president, treasurer, reporter and sentinel, according to a joint news release from Indiana FFA and the Indiana State Department of Agriculture.

The candidates will participate in a rigorous interview and selection process. The chosen candidates will be announced on Thursday, the last day of the convention.

Once selected, the newly-elected officers will embark on a year of service providing direction and overseeing the development of the student-led organization. Along with promoting FFA, agriculture and agricultural education, a majority of their responsibilities include conducting FFA chapter visits, facilitating leadership conferences and hosting career and leadership development events, the news release says.
