Coty Back started with the Indiana FFA Association just over five weeks ago. In his new role as the assistant Executive Director of Leadership Programs for the Indiana FFA Association he hopes to provide the support to create the agriculture industry’s next great leaders.
Back says by providing support to teachers (who are what he calls the crux of all agriculture education) and providing the opportunity for Indiana FFA members to grow their leadership skills that will lead to greater professional development and career success.
Back is a past National FFA Officer. He tells Brownfield he anticipates that experience being very beneficial. “After traveling to various FFA Chapters around the country – we can use them as an example,” he says. “I can bring those experiences back to Indiana and challenge the state’s members to look at different ideas. Maybe it won’t work here in Indiana – but maybe it will, too.”
Back was the Eastern Region Vice President in 2006-2007.
