Taylorville FFA members at Leadership Training

(MACON) — On Wednesday, Oct. 6, Taylorville FFA took 31 members to the Section 16 Lead- ership Training School at Merid- ian High School. Throughout the night members learned communication skills and leadership styles to help them become effec- tive leaders in their futures.

Leadership training school was a great experience that taught me a lot about how to communicate with others, ̈ said Taylorville FFA Vice President Briar Mclaughlin. ̈It was a wonderful opportunity that I would definitely recommend for younger members. ̈

In one room at LTS college information was provided and communication skills were practiced. Students introduced themselves and talked about their plans after high school. Another room spoke about team-building exer- cises. FFA members were blind- folded as their teammates gave them instructions on how to

get through the maze of chairs. Many other workshops spoke about how to become leaders within the FFA and after high school. After the workshops were complete, section FFA officers addressed the crowd on different leadership styles and methods.

̈I think that LTS was a huge success this year, ̈ FFA advisor Sue Schafer said. We are excited to have the capability to take so many students with us to learn about how to make themselves better.”

After LTS, students spoke about how much they learned and what they took away from the workshops.

̈I was very happy to be able to go to LTS for the first time this year.” sophomore Taylorville FFA member Kaleigh Buerk said. “I learned how to become a better leader within our chapter and I am excited for future FFA activi- ties.
