Members of the Dalton High School FFA Chapter attended the Georgia FFA Success Conference recently at the Georgia FFA FCCLA Center.
The theme of the personal development event for 10th-12th grade FFA members was “Race to Success.” During the conference, members were encouraged to step out of their comfort zones and expand their leadership abilities. Students attended sessions that focused on time management, setting goals and becoming leaders in their schools and communities.
Participants also competed in a career success race, exposing the more than 250 students do 13 diverse sectors of the agriculture industry through problem solving stations. Members of the Georgia FFA state officer team led the conference.
Georgia FFA State Vice President Madison Parker said, “The Success Conference is an incredible opportunity and enables FFA members to develop the skills necessary to be effective leaders within their chapter, school and community. We hope these students will utilize the skills they learn at the conference to become lifelong leaders.”
Members of the DHS FFA chapter attending the conference included Jocelyn Gonzales, Neida Leon, Sean Marshall, Iliana Martinez, Monserrat Mendez, Erik Orozco, Katherine Ortega and David Walker.
With more than 41,000 members, the Georgia FFA Association is the third largest state association in the nation. The National FFA Organization, formerly known as the Future Farmers of America, changed its name in 1988 to reflect the growth and diversity of agriculture. The mission of the FFA organization is 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.
