DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – An Apollo High School student has been elected to serve as the 2019-2020 Kentucky FFA Green River State Vice President.

Faith Payne is a member of the Apollo High School FFA chapter, where her advisors are Matt Johnson, Debbie Muse and Aaron Tucker.

Faith was one of 21 candidates who ran for State Office from across the Commonwealth. She completed an application and rigorous interview process.

Payne was chosen by a Nominating Committee made up of graduating senior FFA members and elected unanimously by the delegate body.

State FFA Officers commit to a year of service to the organization, complete extensive training following their election and travel thousands of miles representing the State Association at local and regional FFA events, agricultural meetings, and various other functions across the state.

Faith’s year of service will be completed during the annual State FFA Convention held in Lexington next year.

Kentucky FFA is an organization of nearly 13,000 middle and high school students enrolled in Agricultural Education courses.

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.
