Waitsburgs FFA Freshmen participating at First Leadership contest
March 24, 2022
Alyssa Hollingsworth, Cedar Stegall, and Marion Duncan participated in their very first FFA leadership contest on Wednesday, March 9, in Pomeroy. The three freshmen girls competed in Creed.
Creed is a public speaking event where each competitor presents the 5-paragraph National FFA Creed from memory and answers three questions related to it. The FFA Creed outlines the organization's values and beliefs regarding the industry of agriculture, FFA membership, and citizenship and patriotism. Students participating in the Creed Speaking event learn to communicate in a powerful, organized, and professional manner and build self-confidence.
Two other freshmen, Chasity Paddock and Preston Hinchliffe attended the FFA event and watched Advanced Parliamentary Procedure
The purpose of the parliamentary procedure leadership event is to encourage students to learn to effectively participate in a business meeting and to assist in the development of their leadership, research, problem-solving skills, and critical-thinking skills. The whole group is interested in competing in parliamentary next year.
