FFA Greenhand Fire-Up
The freshman FFA members recently travelled to Northwestern College to participate in Greenhand Fire-up. Iowa FFA President, Mia Gibson, stated, “Greenhand Fire Up provides a chance for first-year high school members to get a sneak peek of the opportunities that FFA holds, and is a conference for members to meet and interact with state and district officers.”
The officers prepared and facilitated workshops to provide the first-year FFA members with skills they would use both within and outside of FFA. Workshops included lesson on authenticity, balancing priorities, communication, and FFA opportunities. The goal was to engage FFA members in learning about the tools that would allow them to be successful in anything they are part of through high school and beyond.
