Shelbyville High School 2020 graduate Julia Hamblen is taking a gap year to serve as Indiana FFA President.  On Monday, she’ll serve as Master of Ceremonies at a major event.


Gov. Eric J. Holcomb, Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch and Attorney General-elect Todd Rokita will be sworn into office by the Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush during a small, private ceremony at the Indiana State Museum today.


Hamblen talks about receiving the request.


She says a recent interaction with the state offices likely helped lead to this opportunity.



She says there’s some nerves but more excitement.
