The Minnesota National Officer candidate, Katie Benson of the Staples Motley FFA Chapter, tells the Red River Farm Network she’s grateful to have made it to the Top 23 in the National FFA Organization officer candidates. “It was a little bit stressful, but definitely a good experience. I grew from it regardless of the outcome.” Benson says she wants FFA members to know they have value. “They have the potential to really create change in their home community, state and country. I want every student to know they have that potential to impact and to pursue their passions. That’s really what drove me in running for national office.”
