State FFA Leadership Night was at Pettisville High School, Tuesday, Dec. 20. Schools from across the area participated.
Four state FFA officers were present, including Jessica Shanahan, state president; Caroline Weihl, District 1 president; Ryan Roberts, District 2 president; and Diana Stacy, District 4 president.
After an opening discussion, participants were split into groups, each with one state officer. The sessions focused on the saying “the value of me, the value of we.”
Students participated in team-building activities as well as group discussions.
“Leadership night was a lot of fun, and the sessions the officers held were very good,” said Kelsey Weirauch, Pettisville secretary.
There also was a dodgeball tournament.
Weihl also visited Pettisville, Thursday, Dec. 15, to talk to ag students in all five classes. She discussed general ag, FFA opportunities, ag promotion, challenging yourself, and college life.
“Caroline was a very good speaker, and spoke about some very interesting topics,” said Claire Fry, a junior.
“Caroline had some very creative ways of teaching these topics,” said Justin Pursel, a junior.
