January 9, more than 353 first year FFA members from more than 40 Missouri High Schools attended the annual Greenhand Motivational Conferences held at SEMO.
These students had the opportunity to learn about being positive role models, how to get involved, making sound choices, becoming active team members, and making a positive difference in their lives, school, and community. These conferences presented by the State FFA Officers and sponsored by MFA Incorporated were held January 7-11, throughout Missouri.
Through interactive workshops and skits, the State FFA Officers encouraged first-year FFA members to explore their talents and reach outside their comfort zone for the opportunities provided through FFA membership. They helped the new agriculture students set goals for their education, careers, and FFA experience.
