Meet Your 2012 – 2013 Western Region Vice President

California student named to 2012-13 National FFA Officer team as Western Region vice president

2012 - 2013 Western Region Vice President Lindsey Anderson

INDIANAPOLIS (Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012/National FFA Organization) – California student Lindsey Anderson grew up raising hogs on her family farm. She joined FFA and through her experiences developed an interest in agriscience research

She’s particularly interested in proposed legislation currently under federal review that would end the use of commercial antibiotics by livestock producers to treat sick animals.

“While recognizing the obvious impact this legislation would have on large-scale livestock producers across the country, we should also realize how it would affect the ability of an FFA member to treat pinkeye on a steer being raised for a fair or an agriculture teacher to control pneumonia in a swine herd at the school farm,” Anderson said. “I believe that we can no longer just advocate for agriculture and make the public aware. We have to get involved, write letters to congressional representatives and take a definite stand that gives agriculture a true voice.”

Today, to conclude the 85th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis, Anderson was elected National FFA Western Region vice president for 2012-13.

Joining Anderson on the 2012-13 National FFA Officer team are Clay Sapp of Florida as president, Kalie Hall of Georgia as national secretary, Joenelle Futrell of Kentucky as Eastern Region vice president, Brennan Costello of Nebraska as Central Region vice president and Wiley Bailey as Southern Region vice president.

For the next year, the group will travel more than 100,000 miles across the country to engage top leaders in business, government and education. The national officers will lead personal growth and leadership training seminars for FFA members. The team will help set policies that will guide the future of FFA and promote agricultural literacy.

“My ultimate goal as a national FFA officer is to serve FFA and its members by being a role model that members choose to emulate,” Anderson said. “I will connect with members and promote diversity throughout the nation. I will also encourage members to look outside the box and get involved in all facets of the National FFA Organization.”

She is a member of the Escalon High School FFA chapter in Escalon, Calif., led by advisors Jennifer Terpstra, Stacy Ingalls and Bruce Campbell. In high school, Anderson held FFA titles including state vice president, sectional vice president, chapter president and chapter secretary. She earned a host of FFA awards, including an American FFA degree, a finalist for national Star of Agriscience award and a Star Chapter Greenhand award.

She currently attends Modesto Junior College in Modesto, Calif., and studies agriculture business. Anderson is a member of the Modesto Junior College Young Farmers, the Collegiate Agriculture Leaders and the Associated Students of Modesto Junior College. She is also a collegiate member of the California Farm Bureau and a Modesto Junior Agriculture ambassador.

“No matter whether a member lives in the inner city or the far reaches of the rural landscape of our country, the task of using research to solve problems that improve agriculture production is an area that will help fill the job sector and marry science with the industry that feeds and clothes the human race,” she said.

Anderson is the daughter of Randall and Teresa Anderson.
