Students from FFA chapters across Ohio attended the 212° and 360° Leadership Conferences.
These conferences are an activity of the National FFA Organization made possible by title sponsor Syngenta as a special project of the National FFA Foundation. Garrett Milburn, Cole Pinkerton, Jorden Goodman, Haylee Sparks, Bridget Oder, Lucy Smith and Gracie Hinkle, members of the Highland FFA Chapter attended the event Jan. 16-17, 2016 in Dublin, OH.
212° – the temperature at which water boils – focuses on taking students to the boiling point of personal leadership. At 211° water is extremely hot, but just one more degree gets us to the next level. The two-day 212° Leadership Conference is focused on student development and helps FFA members become aware of all aspects of personal growth. FFA members attended sessions on mental, emotion, physical and social growth. Students leave this experience with a personal plan for self-improvement.
360° – takes students full circle in terms of chapter leadership. The two-day 360° conference is focused on the importance of influence and how to become an influential leader. Students spent their time in sessions understanding the importance of building healthy relationships, being trustworthy, making critical decisions and collaborating with others. Students leave this conference with the necessary understanding and skills to be an agent of change in their chapters and communities.
This school year, more than 7,500 students across the nation will participate in a 212° or 360° Leadership Conference.
The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 629,367 student members who belong to one of 7,757 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
