A Gustine High student will have a voice in helping shape national FFA policies and selecting a nationwide FFA officer team at the organization’s convention this fall in Indianapolis.
Senior Aubrie Hazan was one of 40 California FFA members selected to serve as a delegate to the national convention.
More than 470 FFA members from across the nation will converge on Indianapolis to serve as delegates.
In that role, Hazan said, the delegates will debate and act on proposed amendments to the FFA Constitution and will vote on the slate of candidates nominated for national office.
“There were over 130 applicants from across California, and I was lucky enough to be one of the 40 people chosen,” Hazan reflected.
Delegates, she added, help shape the national FFA organization going forward through their involvement in electing officers and amending policies.
“I am very excited,” Hazan said of the opportunity to serve as a delegate. “I am so passionate about FFA. Being a national delegate is a great way to give back, and to give my input on different amendments.
Her role as a national delegate will be just one part of what is shaping up as a very busy senior year for Hazan, who is the daughter of Russell and Julie Hazan.
She is very active in FFA locally and will serve as Gustine’s chapter vice president.
In addition, Hazan was recently named 2019 Miss Gustine and will represent the community in that capacity for the year to come.
Gustine most recently had national delegate representation in 2017, when Adriana Toste was selected. Toste also served as a national delegate in 2016, according to FFA advisors.
