On July 15-19th the Wayne County High School FFA chapter attended the annual Kentucky FFA Leadership Training Center Camp at Hardinsburg, Kentucky.
There were a total of 15 members that attended officer and committee classes, athletic games, and many team-bonding activities. They were amongst 24 schools attending with 269 student campers.
“My favorite part about camp is meeting people from all across the state and bonding with them during games or classes. It was definitely my favorite year and a great start for my senior year,” said local FFA member Madison Butler.
“Camp is a great experience for our chapter and we are able to learn new skills together,” added Senior President McKenzie Bell.
FFA Junior Vice-President Harley Hodge competed in the annual Quiz Bowl competition placing second overall. Senior President McKenzie Bell ran for camp council and was elected Treasurer and was picked for top 1% leadership award. Cody Pyles was chosen Best Welder in the class. Cole Edwards and Marianne Jones were selected for all-star teams. MackiLee Worley participated in the talent contest.
Reporter Gracie Chaplin said, “I loved FFA Camp and will always hold the memories close to my heart. My favorite part was being in the High Ropes Class and testing my limits by climbing various obstacles up to 30 feet tall.”
The chapter members gave a big thank you to Justin Horton, advisor, and to their chaperone Selena Horton for supporting them through this great learning opportunity.
