MANLIUS — Bureau Valley High School’s FFA sent six members to the 212 Leadership Conference. The conference is an activity of the National FFA Organization, coordinated by the Illinois FFA Center, and sponsored by Syngenta and Crop Production Services as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.

The two-day program helps FFA members become aware of the four categories of growth while discovering the importance of pursuing life-long growth. FFA members attended sessions on discovering how habits affect growth, determining the difference between personal and professional relationships, and identifying personal mentors and coaches. The agriculture education teachers participated in professional development workshops.
