Frederickson said he hopes to engage state FFA officers monthly to learn more about what the department should be working on to help students and farmers.

"So many times, we adults have the tendency to go, 'Thank you so much for your good work,' and pat you on the head and that's it," said Frederickson. "I hope to engage you through your state officer organization to come to the department and sit down and let me know what's on your mind."
