Arizona ag student is FFA Western VP

Janette Barnard, an agricultural and resources economics senior at the University of Arizona (UA), has been named the 2006-2007 National FFA Western Region Vice President. Barnard is the first national officer elected from the UA in over 40 years.

A member of the Willcox, Ariz. FFA, Barnard was named to the post in October during the 79th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Ind. She was among six individuals selected from a field of 41 to hold national office.

Barnard serves as an ambassador for the UA College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the Arizona National Livestock Show. She is the co-chair of the UA student leadership committee and a member of the Sigma Alpha Professional agricultural sorority.

By working with sheep on her family's Arizona farm, Barnard learned that purposeful effort, care, and attention build a good consensus.
