Every year first year Ag students from Buhach Colony FFA have the opportunity to participate in the Greenhand Leadership Conference (GLC) at the Modesto Junior College Ag Pavillion. This year’s conference was held on August 22, 2018 and 32 excited freshman loaded the bus early in the morning, ready to learn and lead. GLC is a special conference that promotes leadership and works to prepare students for their future in the FFA Organization. Our students thoroughly enjoyed the entertaining team building activities and sessions put on by the GLC staff and conference coordinators. The students returned home from the event talking about how much all the ways the FFA program can help to lead them to a career or even a lifestyle. It provided them with a sense of confidence, pride, and motivation. The theme for this year’s conference was Hollywood. Students were encouraged to not only be themselves, but to be a star. Some of the activities allowed students to overcome their fears while taking a risk, relying on their team members for encouragement. It is our sincere hope that our freshman gained a greater understanding of the FFA and what it has to offer them. All students came home excited for their year in the FFA and we look forward to seeing the leaders they will become!
