Kelsey Weirauch and Ty- ler Herschberger represented the Pettisville FFA chapter at the 2010 Washington Leadership Conference, June 8-12, in Washington, D.C.
The weeklong program helps FFA members improve leadership skills for leadership roles in club chapters, communities and future careers.
They attended sessions on developing authentic leadership, serving the community and participating in civic activity. They also participate in service learning events.
Students also increased understanding of the nation’s heritage with visits to Arlington National Cemetery, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt memorials, and other historic sites.
A highlight of the week was a visit to the offices of the local U.S. representative or senator.
