BEEVILLE — Students from ten different schools gathered at Beeville High School on Saturday, Sept. 15th to participate in a day long leadership camp. The theme of this year’s conference was “One District – One Dream.”

The Gateway District Leadership Camp is hosted each year by the district officer team. Chapter members all come together to learn leadership skills to help them become better leaders in their chapters and community.

This year, George West FFA had six members participate in the leadership conference. Kate Jimerson, GW Secretary and Gateway District Vice President, served as a facilitator for the camp. Quest Newberry, GW President and Area 10 First Vice President, also served as a facilitator as part of his area officer duties. Mary Cansino, Sarah Crawford, Shelby James, Ashley Keadle, Garrett Pawlik, Nicie Smith and Samantha Valdez also attended the camp as chapter members.

While at the conference, FFA members attended various leadership workshops to give them ideas on how to become better leaders and how to make their FFA meetings more informative. They also learned ways to set and accomplish goals, become better communicators and ways to be a better team player.

The Texas FFA is one of the nation’s largest state FFA Associations with a membership of more than 62,000 and approximately 985 FFA chapters. FFA gives students the opportunity to apply practical classroom knowledge to real world experiences through local, state and national competitions.
