    February 9, 2018

    Student members of the FFA Organization, those students in the Landscape & Greenhouse Management and Industrial Equipment Mechanics programs, recently attend the 360° Leadership Conference in Dublin, Ohio.

    This conference took the students on a ‘full circle’ in leadership development, with a goal to provide each students with the tools, ideas and time to develop action plans for their FFA chapters, communities and personal lives.

    Sydney Collier, Landscape and Greenhouse Management junior from Clearview, said the conference focused on making an impact and how everyone can make a difference in their daily lives. “I can put these lessons into practice by sharing with people that I talk to on a daily basis how we can make a difference by just making the decision to come to school every day and doing daily things that make an impact, like helping people out and being a positive person.”

    Landscape and Greenhouse Management Instructor and FFA Advisor Beth Berthold said, "This conference is an important event for the students to attend because they learn to develop leadership skills and are given the foundation to work on their vision for the future. They learn how to integrate these concepts in both their future and professional lives."
