(Submitted by Chadron FFA Officers)
During May 16-18th, the newly formed Chadron FFA Chapter officer's of 2013-2014 traveled east to Aurora, Nebraska. Prior to the trip we were fortunate with numerous community supporters in fundraising dollars to help support our newly formed FFA organization. With high hopes in returning with new knowledge and skills in getting our program up and running we were pleased with the outcome.
When we arrived we were divided into groups with our specific state officer. While on the 3 day adventure we were able to individually, and as a team, learn skills about leadership, organization, parliamentary procedure, program of activities and operation of an FFA chapter. For recreational activities we were allowed to paddle boat, play football, play volleyball, along with several other fun activities.
The Chadron officers that attended were: President Cooper Cogdill, Vice President Matthew Dierkson, Secretary Devin Mitchell, Treasurer Willy Cogdill, Reporter Lanie Riesen, and Sentinel Toni Doescher. Not only were the people generous in their teachings but understanding of our new program and more than happy to help us in getting started. This organization has so far been nothing but a positive experience and we look forward to continue growing our Chadron High School FFA Chapter.
