Seneca FFA Attends Sectional Leadership Workshop
Colton Simpson, Wyatt Bausch, Alexis Snyder, Avery Toberman, Lucas Kilburg, of the Seneca FFA Chapter attended the Sectional Leadership Workshop Thursday, September 15, 2016 at the Argyle High School in Argyle, Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin FFA Sectional Leadership Workshop is designed to prepare local FFA chapter officers and members both in high school and middle school for leadership roles in their school district for the upcoming year. It also informs each chapter of the new programs available to all FFA members and allows the officers to exchange ideas with other FFA chapters in their area. The 2016-2017 State FFA Officer Team planned and conducted this workshop to encourage the participants to develop their leadership potential, to challenge them to set personal and chapter goals for the year and to
motivate the students to take advantage of the many opportunities available to them through the FFA. The 2016 theme was “All the Jackets Down in Blue-ville” Members left ready to promote FFA, agricultural education and agriculture in their schools and communities. FFA advisors also participated in a workshop that helped inform them about FFA opportunities for the school year.
“This workshop is a great way to prepare FFA members for their role as an active member in their local chapter as well as those that serve as chapter officers,” says Cheryl Zimmerman, Wisconsin FFA Executive Director. “These sessions get students excited about leadership and all the opportunities that they can participate in through the FFA organization. It helps them discover their potential in their local FFA chapters and how they can put their leadership into action.”
There are ten Sectional Leadership Workshops held throughout Wisconsin. Over 2,000 FFA members and advisors from 250 FFA chapters will participate in these workshops. The workshops are sponsored through the Wisconsin FFA Foundation Leadership Partner Program.
