The Winnfield FFA Chapter Officer and Program of Activities teams have been working diligently to make this year memorable.
On July 12 and 13, students attended the LA FFA Area I and II Leadership Camp, where they built friendships with fellow members and helped inspire their creativity and independence. They also took part in many team-building activities that fostered unity among the leadership teams. The experience as a whole was immensely beneficial to the chapter.
In the same fashion, students attended a three-day chapter officer orientation on July 14-16. This event centered around planning for the upcoming school year and participating in team-building activities. The officers spent most of their time brainstorming ideas for events that would benefit our community and chapter, creating solid plans for making these events a reality. The officers also “kicked off their business shoes” and engaged in exciting activities like building rafts out of cardboard, playing an oddly competitive poetry game, and trying to break out of an escape room.
Needless to say, these events were extremely valuable for our chapter and have helped the Chapter Officers and Program of Activities teams prepare for the monumental year ahead.
