Over 4,500 first year FFA members from more than 350 Missouri Schools (23 from Mt. Vernon High School) had the opportunity to learn about positive role models, learning to get involved, making sound choices, becoming active team members and making a positive difference in their lives, school and community at the annual FFA Greenhand Motivational Conference. On Thursday, Jan. 11, Mt. Vernon High School Ag Science 1 students traveled to MSU in Springfield to attend. Through interactive workshops and skits, the State FFA officers encouraged first-year FFA members to build their character skills, explore their talents and reach outside their comfort zone for opportunities provided through FFA membership. These first-year agriculture students were encouraged to set goals for their education, careers, and FFA experience.
