National FFA Organization Members Attend National Leadership Conference

 

 

Indianapolis, IN (11/21/16)-

 

Students from FFA chapters across Tennessee attended the 212o and 360o Leadership Conferences. These conferences are an activity of the National FFA organization made possible by title sponsor Syngenta with additional support from Helena Chemical Company as a special project of the National FFA Foundation. Eleven members of the Cascade FFA Chapter attended the event November 18-19, 2016 in Doyle, TN.

 

212o – the temperature at which water boils – focuses on taking students to the boiling point of leadership. At 211o water is extremely hot, but just one more degree gets us to the next level. The two-day 212o Leadership Conference is focused on student development and helps FFA members become aware of all aspects of personal growth. FFA members attended sessions on mental, emotion, physical and social growth. Students leave this experience with a personal plan for self-improvement.

 

360o – takes students full circle in terms of chapter leadership. The two-day 360o conference is focused on the importance of vision and how to become a visionary leader. Students spent their time in sessions understanding the importance of building health relationships, being trustworthy, making critical decisions and collaborating with others. Students leave this conference with the necessary understanding and skills to be a person of influence in their chapters and communities.

 

This school year, more than 7,500 students across the nation will participate in a 212o or 360o Leadership Conference.

 

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agriculture education to 649,355 student members who belong to one of 7,757 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
