Over 150 Minnesota FFA members gathered for the State Greenhand Leadership Conference (SGLC) at Deep Portage Conservation Reserve near Hackensack from June 12-16 to develop leadership skills for their communities and home chapters. Members from the Deer River FFA chapter included Colby Gunderson, Charles Hart, Marshall Michienzi, Trevor Michienzi, and Thor Kongsjord.
The goal of State Greenhand Leadership Conference is to give personal mentoring to first-year high school FFA members. These members come from all corners of the state, represent unique sectors of agriculture and have been recognized as top leaders in their schools. During the conference, students cover an array of topics during sessions that focus mostly on personal development. Goal setting, professional leadership and career exploration are just a few of the topics discovered during this five-day leadership camp.The content you are trying to access is only available to members.
