The four officers in attendance were Thomas Owings, Haley Johnston, Alexis Brooks, and Emma Pulliam. The event included activities to help the officers with their leadership and taught them how to work together as a team. In one of the activities, each officer team received a bag of items and they had to work together to trade the items they did not want with other teams. The purpose of this activity was to teach the officers how to make decisions and work together. There were five break-out sessions and each student chose three of the five sessions to attend. The sessions were Event Planning, Leadership Skills, Time Management, FFA Image, and SAE Knowledge. These sessions included skits and other activities to help the officers learn what each skill looks like and how to accomplish the skill. Overall, the officers had an amazing time and learned how to plan an event, work together, and manage their time!
