SOARing into Fall

Is it possible for it to be October already? That does not seem possible! Like Dakota previously said, the team and I just completed three weeks of chapter visits and district kickoffs! We met so many members from across the state and getting to experience all of the different agriculture education programs was amazing!
On Saturday, October 4th, Kathleen and I adventured down to Scottsburg, Indiana to watch the Scottsburg FFA Fall Prospect Beef Show! Congratulations to the Scottsburg FFA Chapter for working so hard and diligently to make this show successful! Kathleen and I not only got to watch the show and talk with a few FFA members, we also ran into the 2013-2014 Southern Region Vice President- Ethan McNeely! It’s always good to see Ethan!
 This week at the Leadership Center, the team and I are preparing for SOAR, or Seeking Opportunities Achieving Results. This conference is directed toward 7th-10th grade students. IT IS A BLAST! If you signed up to come, you will not regret it! This is a great time for members to get to know people from all over our state. Everyone is split up into different groups so that they have the opportunity to take a step outside of their comfort zone to make some new friends! The great thing about making friends at this conference is that, more than likely, you will see these new friends at FFA events in the future!

As we are finishing up our last minute preparations so that we know this weekend will be the best it can possibly be. Just know that I cannot wait to see everyone! The team and I will be revealing the theme shortly, so be looking for that on all forms of social media! Come prepared and ready to have the time of your life at SOAR 2014! 

Serving with a grateful heart,

Brittany Young
Indiana FFA
State President
