Several Farm Bureau members from FFA chapters around the state, 90 youths in total, recently attended Ohio Leadership Camp at FFA Camp Muskingum in Carrollton via scholarships sponsored by Nationwide Insurance and Ohio Farm Bureau. Scholarships were presented by Kolesen McCoy, president of the Ohio FFA association and Melinda Witten, director of leadership programming for Ohio Farm Bureau. Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau have been sponsors of Ohio FFA for 58 years.
While at camp, the youth took part in leadership training sessions, which were conducted by National FFA leadership development staff. Through various activities, the campers experienced the importance of leadership, teamwork and diversity in a group setting. This was enhanced by the campers’ participation in a mock school board meeting called “Advocate 2018” and FFA Camp Muskingum’s Co-Initiative Course.
