WLC was a fun trip
On July 23rd, seven FFA members and advisor Mrs. Endres flew to Washington DC to attend a week long leadership conference, service learning project, and site seeing of our nation’s capital called WLC (Washington Leadership Conference). The members included Addison Barger, Brandi Guenther, Reece McFarland, Jackson Eisenhauer, Travis Doerr, Quinten Moles, and Mitchell Mackeprang.
Before the conference started the FFA members and Advisor had a day to go site seeing. Within this day they went to Mount Vernon (George Washington’s estate) and the Holocaust Museum.
The conference started on Tuesday afternoon when FFA members were divided up and put into small Family groups, where they discussed issues that were presented earlier in the days. Throughout the conference the FFA members got to see places like Arlington National Cemetery, the Nation’s capital, the Newseum, and the Federal Triangle. They also got to tour the Lincoln, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and King memorial monuments.
The students met with Nebraska Representative Adrian Smith in his office for a visit about agriculture in Nebraska.
They also got to do a community service project while they were there. The project was called Taking Action Now, and in this project they created an assembly line and packed meals for the local food bank.
