Byline: Submitted by Central A&M High School

Students from FFA chapters across Illinois attended the 212 Leadership Conference. This conference is an activity of the National FFA Organization made possible by title sponsor Syngenta as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.

Nathan Trueblood, Mikey Neece, Parker Smith, Mallory Schmitt, Delaney Nation, and Abbi Durbin, members of the Central A&M FFA Chapter attended the event February 8 -- 9, 2019 in Collinsville.

The conference theme was 212 -- the temperature at which water boils -- focuses on taking students to the boiling point of personal leadership. At 211 water is extremely hot, but just one more degree gets us to the next level.

The two-day 212 Leadership Conference is focused on student development and helps FFA members become aware of all aspects of personal growth. FFA members attended sessions on mental, emotion, physical and social growth. Students leave this experience with a personal plan for self-improvement.

This school year, more than 7,500 students across the nation will participate in a 212 or 360 Leadership Conference. The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 629,367 student members who belong to one of 7,757 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
