Washington FFA District VI members with advisors Jessica and Nathan Moore participated in District Officer Training and the Washington Agriculture Leadership Experience conferences at Lynden. Students who participated in leadership experience were selected through an application process, and among the accepted applicants were Paiton Kirpes and Lydia Smith from Colton and Meaghan Belland, Tyler Bober, Madison Dingman and LouEllen Reed from Oakesdale.

District officers in the training segment were Logan Reed, Oakesdale; Jordyn Moehrle, Colton; Lauren Stubbs, LaCrosse; Cole Baerlocher, Colfax; Hannah Pettyjohn, Walla Walla, and Hailey Penman, Pullman.

The conference provided the opportunity for students to visit various agriculture businesses. These tours allowed participants to learn about agriculture commodities such as dairy, berries and even feed facilities. They were able to see major commodities that are not common in our area of the state.

The officer training was led by the Washington FFA State Officer Team. The district officers engaged in sessions about leadership skills such as professionalism, communication and service. During these sessions, the district officers planned events to help promote leadership.

District VI members were able to meet and work with FFA members from all over Washington State. Members also met with the local Rotary Club for lunch and had the opportunity to interview a panel of professionals from the agriculture industry at dinner.
