On July 29, 14 officers of the Gallatin FFA attended the Area II Chapter Officer Training at the Litton Agriculture Center, in Chillicothe. The training provides officers a time to become orientated to the roles of each specific office and the duties that they hold. The conference also offered leadership training and team building for the officer teams from the Area II FFA Association. This year’s activities included individual officer workshops, leadership training and finally team building activities. Each officer had a breakout session with other chapter officers to discuss the duties that they will be fulfilling for the upcoming year. After lunch the officer teams came back together to work on leadership and team building.
Members who attended this year’s officer training were as follows: President Grace Von Opitz, Vice Presidents Kirbie Crouse and Kourtney Bird, Secretary Kaley Cox, Treasurer Andrew Michael, Reporters Tannah Terry and Derrik Baldwin, Historian Mary King, Sentinel Daniel Pettit, and the Junior Officers Assistant Secretary Aubrey Burns, Assistant Treasurer Kase Critten, Assistant Historian McKenzie Taylor, and Chapter Delegates Cooper Grady and Christy Hall. The students were accompanied by Gallatin FFA Advisor Chris Henderson.
