ROARING SPRINGS – Led by Greenbelt District FFA President Madilyn Armstrong and Area Reporter Madison Waters, both members of Wellington FFA, freshman students experienced the recent Roaring Springs FFA Greenhand Camp at the Community Center in Roaring Springs.
Aimed at developing leadership skills, students attended morning workshops and ate lunch at the facility.
“Afterwards, we took the kids to the Roaring Springs Ranch Club to swim,” said Wellington FFA Advisor Drew Taylor. “This was the first time the Greenbelt District has ever hosted this event.”
Wellington FFA had 20 students and the two officers attend the workshop. Taylor transported the group on a Skyrocket bus to Roaring Springs.
