The Standing Stone FFA Chapter from Huntingdon Area High School traveled to Harrisburg to an FFA conference called ACES Feb. 8-9.
The conference is held by the national FFA organization. ACES stands for Agricultural Cooperation Establishes Success. The Standing Stone FFA had a total of 18 members attend ACES.
The members were separated into multiple groups with other members from all across the state. The theme was, Setting Sail on Your Way to “Make Your Mark!” There were two decks of workshops, one for freshmen and sophomores and the other for junior and seniors.
Some of the freshman and sophomore workshops included, conversation skills, record keeping and FFA mission and motto. The purpose of these workshops were for the newer members to get more familiar with the FFA atmosphere. Junior and senior workshops included five levels of leadership, financial responsibility and FFA and your future. These workshops were to help older members think about their future.
Overall ACES was helpful every FFA member, allowing them to realize they can impact the world. No matter where you come from or what route you take, you can “make your mark!”
