Stephen Coye

National Grange Executive Committee Member
President, New York State Grange

Stephen, a resident of Ravena, New York, has been a member of the National Grange Executive Committee since 2017. Coye also serves as Master/President of the New York State Grange, a position held since 2011. Coye is a third generation Granger, born and raised on a 400+ acre dairy farm in Central New York State. He joined the newly reactivated Smyrna Junior Grange in 1951, graduated into the Subordinate Grange in 1958, and has been active since that point, serving on all levels of the Grange organization.

Following college, Coye spent four years teaching music at the Georgetown (NY) Central School. Deciding it was time for a career change, he secured a position with the New York State Senate, and subsequently relocated to the Albany, NY, area. That employment, which he figured would last but a few years, ended up as a 36-year career from which he retired in 2009.

Coye is a member of Ravena Grange #1457, and the Albany County Pomona Grange. In addition to the Grange, he is a member of the Albany-Schenectady-Greene Agricultural Society, currently serving as Superintendent of the Grange Building at the Altamont Fair; the Colonie B.P.O.E., a 65+ year member of the West Smyrna Baptist Church; and the Saratoga Battle Chapter Society Sons of the American Revolution. He has two grown children, Joel S. Coye, and Major AshLee C. Coye, NYARNG.
