Faulkner completes internship with National FFA Organization

Nov. 12, 2014

Shelby Faulkner, of Urbana, served as an intern this summer with the National FFA Organization in Indianapolis, Indiana.

During her internship, Faulkner supported state officer programs which support the approximately 375 state officers who represent FFA’s 52 state associations. Her duties included preparing students for congressional visits during the annual State Presidents’ Conference in Washington, D.C. in July, developed content for the delegate process held in conjunction with the 2014 National FFA Convention and Expo, and developed educational materials for the International Leadership Seminar for State Officers to be held in January 2015.

“I was excited to welcome Shelby to our team,” said Shane Jacques, Educational Specialist – State Officer Programs for the National FFA Organization. “As a state officer, Shelby participated in many of our programs and gained a reputation for embracing new opportunities and experiences. Her positive outlook and constructive approach stood out from her peers and made her internship offer an easy decision. She’s a prime example of the need to make lasting first impressions and maintain a strong network of connections within one’s industry.”

Faulkner returned Ohio State in the fall to begin her junior year studying agriscience education. She is the daughter of Lenny and Zoe Faulkner and a graduate of Urbana High School.
