Students from FFA chapters across Arkansas including Mountainburg attended the 360 degree and Greenhand leadership conferences.

The 360 degree conference is an activity of the National FFA Organization made possible by title sponsor Syngenta and with additional support from Helena Chemical Co. as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.

The "Going Green" Greenhand Conference is a state leadership conference for first year FFA members and is presented by the Arkansas FFA state officers.

Hunter Morris, Bobby Steudeman, Willis Vaught, Winston Shepherd, Hannah Long, Jessie Snobgrass, Araia Akins, Rowdy Nelson, Hannah Jones, Elizabeth Stenberg, Bailey Shepherd, Kendall Seratt, Jimmy Robertson, members of the Mountainburg FFA Chapter, attended.

360 degrees takes students full circle in terms of chapter leadership. The two-day 360 degree conference is focused on the importance of vision and how to become a visionary leader.

Students spent their time in sessions understanding the importance of vision, conducting a chapter needs assessment, crafting a vision plan for their local FFA chapter and developing a strategy to implement their vision.

"Going Green" Greenhand Conference consists of six sessions that focus on the opportunities that the FFA has to offer students during their high school careers.
