Over the weekend, with a whopping 72,954 registered attendees at the 96th National FFA Convention & Expo waiting in anticipation and hundreds of thousands watching from across the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the National FFA Organization announced its 2023-24 National FFA Officer team during the final session in Indianapolis.
Students from Michigan, Missouri, Florida, Iowa, Ohio, and New Mexico were elected by National FFA Delegates today to serve as 2023-24 National FFA Officers. They will lead the organization for the next year.
These members were selected from 35 candidates vying for the honor. Candidates participate in an extensive interview process with the National FFA Officer Nominating Committee leading up to the selection.
The 2023-2024 National FFA Officers are:
Amara Jackson of Michigan was elected national president. She is a former member of the Corunna FFA Chapter.
Grant Norfleet of Missouri was elected national secretary. He is a former member of the Mexico FFA Chapter.
Carter Howell of Florida was elected southern region vice president. He is a former member of the Durant Senior FFA Chapter.
Kanyon Huntington of Iowa was elected central region vice president. He is a former member of the East Union FFA Chapter.
Morgan Anderson of Ohio was elected eastern region vice president. She is a former member of the Amanda-Clearcreek FFA Chapter.
Emily Gossett of New Mexico was elected western region vice president. She is a former member of the Silver City FFA Chapter.
Each year, during the National FFA Convention & Expo, six student members are elected by delegates to represent the organization as national officers. Delegates elect a president, secretary, and vice presidents representing the country’s central, southern, eastern, and western regions.
Throughout their year of service to the National FFA Organization, the officers will 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 nationwide and help set policies to guide the future of FFA and the next generation of leaders.
The National FFA Organization is a school-based youth leadership development organization of more than 945,000 student members as part of 9,163 local FFA chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
