Monday, September 21st, the Olympia FFA Introduction to Agriculture students and chapter officer team went to Leadership Training School held at Normal Community High School. LTS is a workshop lead by Section 9 officers including our own Molly Schempp who serves as the Treasurer.  Students from all over the section were split into 5 groups rotating through stations representing 5 core characteristics.
The Section 9 officers believed these traits were the most important in building leadership skills: Collaboration, Trust, Knowledge, Communication, and Relationships. Each station had a game that focused on that specific characteristic. During the trust station, one student from the group was asked to lay on a mat while the rest of the group had to pick them up each using only 2 fingers. This game helped the student laying down to trust that the rest of the group would pick him/her up safely and set her down safely. gChapter President, Karmen Glueck reflected on the event saying, “I believe it was a great experience for our FFA members to attend LTS because we learned about multiple communication activities that we can take back to our chapter meetings.  This will help a great deal since group communication is key!” Leadership Training School was an awesome chance to grow as a leader while getting to know students from other schools.   Submitted by Chapter Reporter – Anna Davis
