Hillsdale FFA Officer Retreat, Training

The Hillsdale FFA chapter just recently had its officer retreat for the 2018-2019 Officer Team. On Wednesday June 6, the day started out with a scavenger hunt where the team had to find clues posted around the school that took them to the ag room to begin the retreat.

Once the hunt was completed the officer team packed into the school van to travel to OSU ATI for motivational speaker Randy Fisher, a speaker, trainer and coach. The officers learned multiple leadership objectives including self-confidence, teamwork, and communication. The team thanked Fisher for his time and began to get some training and planning done. Activities, events, and issues were planned for the upcoming school year.

The officer team made its way to The Olde Jaol for dinner and desserts. After dinner pictures were taken to document the day. The team traveled to Mohican Lodge. The members finished up some business so that they could end the night with some activities: swimming, s’mores, beach volleyball and some team bonding.

On Thursday, June 7, the team made breakfast for each other. The members continued planning personal projects for the new school year. The training consisted of conducting a layout of the 2018-2019 school schedule, creating rules for the members, and working on leadership skills. The training continued until lunch time at the lodge, before heading out for team activities. The officer team traveled to Mohican Adventures for a team bonding canoe trip down the river. The 2018-2019 officer team had a successful trip planning events, setting personal and team goals, and bonding.
