31 First-year Muscatine FFA members attended the annual Greenhand Fire Up at Clear Creek Amana on Friday, Oct. 14.
Iowa FFA President, Sam Martin, stated, “Greenhand Fire Up provides a chance for first-year high school members to get a sneak peek of the opportunities that FFA holds, and is a conference for members to meet and interact with state and district officers.”
The officers prepared and facilitated workshops on authenticity, balancing priorities, communication, and FFA opportunities, in order to provide the first-year FFA members with skills they would use both within and outside of FFA. The goal was to engage FFA members in learning about the tools that would allow them to be successful in anything they are part of through high school and beyond.
Greenhand Fire Up is made possible with support from the Iowa FFA Foundation.
