For Colin Barclay of the Delphos FFA, the seed to become a National FFA Officer was planted during his freshman year in high school.
As he was preparing to leave for Indianapolis and the 85th National FFA Convention on Friday, October 19, Colin said he was feeling a lot of different emotions.
“I feel excited, extremely excited, nervous, all at the same time,” Barclay said. “I’ve been working towards this for a long time, so it’s almost to the point where I’m ready to get started, I’m ready for the interviews, I’m hungry for it, so yeah, a lot of different emotions.”
Should the OSU Sophomore be elected a National FFA Officer, it would be more than just wearing a different FFA jacket.
“For me it’s about being able to advocate for agriculture, for me it’s about sending a message that the best is yet to come, the best in agriculture, the best in our organization and the best in each and every student,” said the National FFA Officer Candidate.
