Tayten L. Barhaug 

Serving as your 2021-2022 Alaska State President, I want to spread FFA to as many people as possible. Advocating for the diversity of agriculture in Alaska is a priority for our organization as we continue to grow and share our belief in the importance of agriculture. Between raising market hogs for my SAE to competing in the Prepared Speaking LDE, I have come to love this association and the members who represent it. I challenge myself to connect with each member about their unique passion for their SAE, CDE and/or LDE throughout this coming year. From the Silent Springs Chapter in the north to the Ninilchik Chapter in the south, and every chapter in between, we all have a common purpose of growing leaders, building communities, and strengthening agriculture through Alaska FFA. 


Travis C. Terry
Serving as your 2021-2022 Alaska State Vice President. I was born in Fairbanks, Alaska, but was raised in Delta Junction and Paxson. I would like to get the state officers more involved in meeting chapter members and have the chapter members get to know the state officers in and outside of FFA. My FFA experiences started in August, 2017, as a member of the Delta Junction FFA chapter. My current SAE is Volunteer Firefighter/EMT. I love CDEs, and Ag Mech is my all time favorite CDE. As State Officers, we should be investing in the future of FFA and into the local chapters. Alaska FFA can and will hold true to the best traditions of our natural life!

Serving as your 2021-2022 Kenai Peninsula District Representative, I am looking forward to learning and growing with Alaska FFA. Reaching out statewide to connect with our chapters and members within them. My FFA adventure started the summer of 2017 where I very timidly sat in the corner as I watched members communicate with leaders in our community. I had no idea this new adventure would take me from Homer all the way to Oregon and back, spreading our values and learning so much along the way. FFA has truly shaped me into the person I am today, and I am looking forward to a year of growth and leadership opportunities with each and everyone one of you.

 

Teak A. Barhaug

Serving as your 2021-2022 Kenai Peninsula & Matsu District Representative, I strive to learn everything I can about agriculture in Alaska through our FFA members. I want to see firsthand what and who Alaska FFA truly is, and to help it grow in my time in office. I began in FFA with the start of the Iron Mountain Chapter in Seward, and have learned a lot about agriculture, leadership, and what it means to be a part of FFA in these last four years. FFA has been a game changer for me, and it is my goal to be able to provide the same quality of experience for others. Likewise, I strive to help Alaska FFA grow, in both membership and opportunity. I am proud to serve Alaska FFA, and look forward to a busy year! 

 

Josh D. Batz

Serving as the 2021-2022 Interior District Representative, I want to help build Alaska Agriculture and help our State Association get back to its former glory and even farther. I want to help build membership in my own and other chapters, and hopefully see some new chapters chartered. I didn't plan on being a State Officer this year, but I'm glad I get the chance to help with our great organization. Thank you, FFA members, for sticking with us through all the hassle of the lockdowns and Covid. You are all truly an inspiration!
