On Tuesday, Oct. 2, six greenhands or first year FFA members attended the Area Greenhand Conference at Chadwick High School, home of our Area FFA President.
Those members attending were Jamie Holland, Brandon Brooks, Jake Olsen, Austin Olsen, Devon Degase, Taylor McDonald, area parliamentarian, and Tiffany Kauffman, advisor.
This conference was attended by a majority of the 21 schools in our area and brought over 150 greenhands together to learn about the exciting activities in FFA that members can get involved in.
We also played games like Honey if you Love me Smile and the Toilet Paper Roll to help teach us lessons we learn in FFA such as communication and teamwork. Throughout the evening, we also had to introduce ourselves to others by telling four interesting facts to everyone in the group so we could get to know each other.
The area officers conducted opening and closing ceremonies and conducted a skit that encouraged us to get involved in activities. This was a fun trip and helped everyone gain leadership skills.
