Social media posts lead to removal of National FFA officer

The National FFA Organization has removed Western Region Vice President Lyle Logemann from his national officer position following the discovery of “concerning” social media posts.

National FFA executives say the posts, made prior to his service as a national officer, violate the organization’s code of ethics and commitment to appreciate and promote diversity. Logemann took responsibility for the posts, admitting that they do not reflect the ideals of the organization.

In the future, all national officer candidates will be subject to thorough background checks, including vetting of their social media activities by external professional firms.

The National FFA officer team will continue to operate the remainder of the year with five officers.

  • Read the post Lyle Logemann made. Contrary to belief, his comment did not contain hate or racial speech. Mr. Logemann’s free speech rights are being denied. It is quite obvious that the people in this situation are targeting him because he has a difference of opinion. Just because people don’t agree with you doesn’t mean they are not entitled to their opinion. People need to consider if this organization is constitutional sound.

    • I cannot find exactly what he said, and would like to know.

      • The content of the posts has not been shared with Brownfield. The National FFA Organization’s statement that offers more details is posted on their Facebook page.
