The Washington State FFA Officer Team kicked off their 2014 Blue and Gold Leadership Tour on September 23rd at Quincy High School. The first stop on the FFA Highway was at District 9, with a showing of more than 300 members from Kahlotus to Ephrata…all eager to learn more about how to follow their “Route to Success.” Not only was this year’s state theme introduced, but the state officers gave workshops on topics ranging from teamwork and respect to educating the members on how to set ‘SMART’ goals, general leadership skills, and lastly how to navigate peer pressure while making good choices. We decided that these workshops would best equip our members with the tools necessary to a successful career, and introduce them to the world of opportunity that is the National FFA Organization.
While we are still in the middle of our Blue and Gold Leadership Tour, we are already so pleased with the amount of dedication and passion exhibited by our members across the state, and we cannot wait to see what the rest of the tour may bring. One thing is for sure, the FFA Highway never fails to bring with it a wealth of memories and motivated members! Check out our schedule below to see all of the tour dates.
