NMSU student running for national FFA office

A student at New Mexico State University is campaigning to lead one of the country?s oldest, biggest and best-known organizations for developing young leaders, especially in the realm of agriculture.

Caleb Gustin, a junior in NMSU?s Agricultural Economics and Agricultural Business Department, is among 42 candidates from across the country hoping to take one of just six spots on the 2014-2015 National FFA Officer Team. That team will be charged with inspiring leadership, personal growth and career success among 610,240 FFA members in 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

?I?m ready to step into this experience and give myself to all the members,? Gustin said. ?Not all leaders are in the spotlight ? I want to learn from the members and learn their story in order to help them reach their full potential.?

If Gustin wins national office, he wouldn?t be the first with NMSU ties to do so. Lowell Catlett, now the dean of NMSU?s College of ACES, served on the 1968-69 National FFA Officer Team.
