Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Members from the Cassville FFA Chapter attended the State FFA Leadership Camp from June 3 through 7, at Camp Rising Sun located within the Lake of the Ozarks State Park. The camp is sponsored by the Missouri FFA Association.

The institute provided leadership training for over 14 Cassville student members and approximately 1200 high school student members of FFA across Missouri every year. High school students are trained by State FFA officers as well as a Leadership Director who is a past State FFA Officer. Students learn how to overcome obstacles and develop their communication and personal skills.

The National FFA Organization makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. Nationally there are over 500,000 FFA members. Missouri ranks 4th in the nation with over 24,000 FFA members.
