Seven first year FFA members attended Area IV Greenhand Camp on September 24th at the West Texas Fair Grounds in Abilene. While there, they learned about the many opportunities afforded them through FFA membership from District, Area, and State FFA Officers, as well as the 2019 Texas FFA candidate for National FFA Office.
Each student was assigned to a different group where they met other students from all over our FFA Area, which stretches from Miles to Slidell, and Goldthwaite to the Red River. They all said they learned something about the opportunities; FFA presents Leadership Development Events (LDE's), Career Development Events (CDE's), Speaking Development Events (SDE's), Scholarships, FFA Degrees of Membership, Conventions and Banquets, and the various Officer positions from Chapter all the way to State and National Offices.
They represented Santa Anna very well, and came back excited to try some of the new things they discovered while there. I look forward to seeing the great things to come from this group of Greenhands.
