Preble Shawnee FFA members attend national leadership conference

­­­Students from FFA chapters across Ohio attended the 212o and 360° Leadership Conferences. These conferences are an activity of the National FFA Organization made possible by title sponsor Syngenta and with additional support from Crop Production Services as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.

Caleb Moore, Blake Rogers, Savannah Schneider, Lacey Hill, Abbey Hill, Sidney Hacker,  and Kaitlyn McGarvey, members of the Preble Shawnee FFA Chapter attended the event on January 17th.

212° – the temperature at which water boils – focuses on taking students to the boiling point of leadership. At 211° 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 their passions and virtues. FFA members attended sessions on discovering their passions, making positive decisions, setting SMART goals and taking steps towards self-improvement.

360° takes students full circle in terms of chapter leadership. The two-day 360° 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 vision, conducting a chapter needs assessment, crafting a vision plan for their local FFA chapter and developing a strategy to implement their vision.

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