The theme for the 2019 South Dakota FFA Leadership Retreat was “Rock On”. The 126 FFA members who attended the retreat held at Camp Bob Marshall near Custer July 9-12 developed and enhanced their leadership skills and self-confidence through interactive learning. By joining the FFA organization and taking the initiative to attend the retreat, members are “rocking” their potential to get the most out of the FFA. While at the retreat, Mason Machmiller, the Dells FFA Chapter vice president, participated in the program that featured workshops that helped members discover the value of servant leadership, character, attitude, a focused vision, communication, trust, and responsibility. They will use these new skills and ideas to benefit their local chapters and communities and continue to “Rock On”. Ridge Hugbanks, the central region vice president from Alva, Oklahoma attended the retreat and helped the state FFA officers encourage the members to continue to develop their leadership skills. Retreat attendees also participated in a service learning project held at Camp Bob Marshall cleaning up areas of the camp along with attending the light show at Crazy Horse.
