METTER — This school year’s FFA officers from the Ebenezer Middle FFA chapter recently attended a retreat and training held at George L. Smith State Park.
This two-day training and retreat allowed the new officer team to spend some time getting to know one another, learning how to be a leader, and planning out the events for the chapter this coming up year. The training was led by Ms. Sapp, the advisor at Ebenezer Middle School.
“It gave the officer team and I an opportunity to get to know each other, have a little fun, and plan out our FFA calendar for the year.”
The overnight trip involved the officers learning about leadership, what it means to be a servant leader, and completing initiatives that encouraged team work and communication. The EMS FFA Officer team also worked to schedule chapter meetings, community service projects, and FFA Week activities for the 2017-2018 school year.
In addition to planning their calendar, the officers also had a little fun making s’mores, going kayaking, and playing the card game UNO while it rained.
FFA members in attendance were President Lucas Hartzog, Vice President Trey Smith, Secretary Breanna Harris, Treasurer Chaslyn Walker, Reporter Isabella Ramos and Sentinel Connor Menefee.
These students will return to the Ebenezer Middle FFA Chapter, where they will use their leadership skills to run chapter events and represent the FFA organization.
