More than 680 students and 140 teachers from across Illinois attended the 212 Leadership Conference in late January. The conference is an activity of the National FFA Organization, coordinated by the Illinois FFA Center, sponsored by Syngenta and Crop Production Services as a special project of the National FFA Foundation. Greenville High School FFA students attending the event included J.T. Thiems, Justin Rieke, Kelly Crites, Shelbi McCray, and Maggie Poynter.

The two-day program helps FFA members become aware of the four categories of growth while discovering the importance of pursuing life-long growth.
