COVINGTON — Members of Liberty County High School’s FFA Chapter attended the Georgia FFA Success Conference on March 2-3 at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center in Covington.
The theme of the 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 positive attitudes, opportunities available through FFA, making wise decisions and the importance of service. Members of the Georgia FFA state officer team led the conference.
“The success conference is an incredible opportunity and enables FFA members to develop the skills necessary to be effective leaders within their chapters, schools and communities. We hope these students will utilize the skills they learn at the conference to become lifelong leaders,” conference presenter and FFA State Vice President Cassidy Gilliard said.
Liberty County High School FFA chapter members who attended were seniors Kevin Chiu, Samuel Williams, Shyann Reed and Gary Adams; juniors Lori Harden, Bradley Lairamore and Chason Lenz; sophomores Mariah Audesey and Brandon Collum and advisor Jeci Crane-Bohannon.
With more than 31,000 members, the Georgia FFA Association is the third-largest state association in the nation.
