Thursday, July 13, 2017 | Author: McKenzie Ellis, El Campo FFA

Throughout the week of the Texas FFA Convention, both past and present members hosted workshops to promote leadership skills. Members participated in entertaining games and thought-provoking activities as they continued to develop their own skills of premier leadership, personal growth and career success. 

National Officer and Texas native, Trey Elizondo kicked off the first workshop of convention. Elizondo focused on self-confidence and trusting others on your team. 

“I think its beneficial to take part in a leadership workshop,” said Elizondo. “It gives members the opportunity to learn lessons through hands-on experiences.”

The FFA Organization prides itself in showing today’s youth they have the capability to be a leader. Throughout the year, leadership workshops are available to all members at the district, area and state levels. 

On Wednesday July 12, visiting Oklahoma State Officers hosted a workshop titled “It Takes Two!” Demonstrating that strong friendships lead to dynamic leadership, the high energy in the workshop kept the attendees active.

Texas FFA Ethical Leadership Fellows Gracie Hedrick, Ben Johnson and Mable Jordan also presented a workshop to aid students in finding their power and core values within. The workshop activities focused on different types of leadership and their utilities. 

“It was great seeing students find their true values” said Hedrick.
