Schuyler R-1 FFA Attends Greenhand Motivational Conference
Around 75 to 100 first year FFA members from 5 Missouri High Schools had the opportunity to learn about being positive role models, learning to get involved, making sound choices, becoming active team members and making a positive difference in their lives, school and community at the annual Greenhand Motivational Conference. This conference presented by the State FFA Officers and sponsored by MFA Incorporated was held at Truman State University on January 11, 2018. Many schools were unable to attend the conference due to a bad ice storm.
Through interactive workshops and skits the State FFA Officers encouraged first-year FFA members to explore their talents and reach outside their comfort zone for the opportunities provided through FFA membership. They helped the new agriculture students set goals for their education, careers, and FFA experience.
The FFA is a national youth organization of over 650,000 student members preparing for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture with 343 chapters and more than 25,900 members in Missouri. The FFA strives to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
Those in attendance were: Taren White, Gavin Veatch, Ryan Rigdon, Wade Cooper, Kaylee Lefler, Addison Spray, Jordyn Gray, Payge Humphrey, and Savanna Fields.
