Johnathon Howe FFA officerDAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (6/13/18) — Johnathon Howe, who recently graduated as a member of the Daviess County High School Class of 2018, was elected to serve as the 2018-2019 Kentucky FFA treasurer during the recent state FFA convention in Lexington. Johnathon, son of William and Jennifer Howe of Reynolds Station, was a member of the Daviess County High School FFA chapter, where his advisors were Chad Askins, Craig Howard and Jason Smith. Howe will attend Murray State University this fall.
 
Johnathon was one of 23 candidates from across the Commonwealth who ran for state officer positions at the convention. He completed an application and rigorous interview process, was selected by a nominating committee made up of graduating senior FFA members and was elected unanimously by the delegate body. 
 
State FFA officers commit to a year of service to the organization. Following their elections, students complete extensive training and travel several thousand miles representing the state association at local and regional FFA events, agricultural meetings and various other functions across the state. Howe’s year of service will conclude during the 90th State FFA Convention, which will be held June 11-13, 2019, in Lexington. 
 
The Kentucky FFA organization involves more than 14,000 students enrolled in agricultural education courses in middle and high schools across the state. The organization currently has 150 chapters in 115 counties. Nationally, FFA has more than 653,000 members in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The FFA mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
