What does the number 9,400 mean to you? While that may just be a number to some, to myself and six other individuals living in Trafalgar, that number means so much more. In the Indiana FFA we are at approximately 9,400 FFA members state wide. So, to my teammates and I, 9,400 represents the Infinite Potential that the Indiana FFA has.
Serving this year as the Indiana FFA State Southern Region Vice-President, I am blessed to be serving each and every one of those FFA members every single day! Throughout the year, we are presented with numerous opportunities to impact the FFA members throughout the state. One of the most exciting ways that we can make an impact is through our leadership conferences. After countless hours spent getting ready, the time is almost here for an action packed weekend. Filled with fun, excitement, agricultural education, and leadership training, our 2010 F.I.R.E. (Foundations In Reaching Excellence) Conference is finally here!!
My fellow teammates and I are excited to welcome nearly 200 FFA members to the Indiana FFA Leadership Center this weekend for an adventure to “Destination Excellence”. Throughout the weekend we will have everything from an ice cream social, personal growth session, agricultural literacy session, and we can’t forget the famous “Ultimate Challenge” filled with messy, fun, and fast paced team activities. Most importantly, this weekend will serve as a way for students to network with other FFA members across the state, learn valuable leadership skills, and develop and prepare themselves to become the future generation of leaders in the agricultural industry. Be sure to check out the blog next week to hear more about the F.I.R.E. Conference.
