California student Lindsey Anderson grew up raising hogs on her family farm. She joined FFA and through her experiences developed an interest in agriscience research.
“My ultimate goal as a national FFA officer is to serve FFA and its members by being a role model that members choose to emulate,” Anderson said. “I will connect with members and promote diversity throughout the nation. I will also encourage members to look outside the box and get involved in all facets of the National FFA Organization.”
She is a member of the Escalon High School FFA chapter in Escalon, Calif., led by advisors Jennifer Terpstra, Stacy Ingalls and Bruce Campbell. In high school, Anderson held FFA titles including state vice president, sectional vice president, chapter president and chapter secretary. She earned a host of FFA awards, including an American FFA degree, a finalist for national Star of Agriscience award and a Star Chapter Greenhand award.
She currently attends Modesto Junior College in Modesto, Calif., and studies agriculture business. Anderson is a member of the Modesto Junior College Young Farmers, the Collegiate Agriculture Leaders and the Associated Students of Modesto Junior College. She is also a collegiate member of the California Farm Bureau and a Modesto Junior Agriculture ambassador.
