The American Farmers & Ranchers Youth Advisory Council was started more than 30 years ago and has produced numerous outstanding young leaders. The legacy continues at Senior Leadership Summit, July 24-30, when a new council of five high school juniors and seniors is elected to a one-year term.
The youth advisory council members for 2015-2016 are Ashley Tucker, Grant Wilber, Guess Leonard, Macee Hammack, and Madi Baughman.
Go After It!
The council offers close relationships with other members, serving younger students, the opportunity to mature, and learn how to work with others strengths and weaknesses. They all get to share their love and passion while meeting so many people and being the person others can come to in their time of need.
The members of the council say their advice to students interested in running for council is “Go after it!” “This is a leadership door to go through to learn” “Dive in head first because you never know until you try” “Give it everything you’ve got and show your personality” and finally “Get past your fear and doubt of not doing it, reach out for your goals.”
These students work with a servant’s heart to be role models to young students across the state. They look for any and every opportunity to help someone in need and are great examples for what the agriculture youth in our state have to offer.
