Former fair queen now leads state FFA


Follow The Republic:


The 2013 Bartholomew County 4-H Fair Queen has traded her crown for a gavel.

Brittany Young, 18, just began her term as president of the Indiana FFA, following her selection at the 85th state convention.

The recent Hauser High School graduate is the first from Hope to be selected for the position and the third to serve from Bartholomew County.

"It was crazy. It was the last thing I expected," she said. "I'm so excited for what's to come."

The new job comes with sacrifices: Young will need to postpone attending college for a year.

Serving as a state officer for FFA is a full-time job. For the next year, Young will live at the FFA Leadership Center in Trafalger with the six other officers.
