Pearl City, Illinois — Students from the Pearl City FFA Chapter attended the annual 212° conference in Schaumburg recently. This conference is an activity of the National FFA Organization made possible by title sponsors as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
This two-day event is focused on student development and helps FFA members become aware of all aspects of personal growth. Students attended sessions on mental, emotional, physical, and social growth, and leave this experience with a personal plan for self-improvement.. This event also includes a dance along with other, engaging group activities. The conference was generously sponsored by the Energy Transfer Partners.
212° – the temperature at which water boils – focuses on taking students to the boiling point of personal leadership. At 211°, water is extremely hot, but just one more degree gets us to the next level.
FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
The trip for the Pearl City FFA members was sponsored by the Pearl City FFA Alumni.
