FFA members attend leadership conference

COVINGTON, Ga. — Members of the Colquitt County FFA Chapter recently attended the Georgia FFA Success Conference held March 2-3 at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center.

The theme of the personal development event for 10th-12th grade FFA members was “The Pursuit.” During the two-day conference, members were encouraged to step out of their comfort zones and challenged to expand their leadership abilities. Students attended sessions that focused on maintaining a positive attitude, opportunities available through the FFA, making wise decisions, and the importance of service. Members of the Georgia FFA state officer team led the conference.  

FFA State Vice President Cassidy Gilliard, a conference presenter, said, “The Success Conference is an incredible opportunity and enables FFA members to develop the skills necessary to be effective leaders within their chapter, school and community.  We hope these students will utilize the skills they learn at the conference to become life-long leaders.”

Members of the Colquitt County FFA chapter attending the conference included Nicki Strickland, Clay Carter, Sara Jenkins, Michael Schwarz, Anna Parker, Mikayla Crews, Elizabeth Horne, Anna Hartley, and Jaimee Burt.

With more than 31,000 members, the Georgia FFA Association is the third largest state association in the nation. The National FFA Organization, formerly known as the Future Farmers of America, changed its name in 1988 to reflect the growth and diversity of agriculture. The mission of the FFA organization is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
