On July 22-26, Carroll County High School FFA chapter, along with 23 different chapters from across Kentucky, attended FFA Leadership Training Center in Hardinsburg. There were 319 students and advisors that went to the fifth annual training for chapter officers and committee members.

Each member of the Carroll County FFA officer team participated in classes to help train them in the most effective methods of running a chapter. 

The officers revised their annual Program of Activities, adopted a calendar of events for the year, and organized fundraising opportunities that they would like to pursue this year. 

In addition to the officer classes, students were involved in special interest classes which included parliamentary procedure, livestock judging reasons, going to college, among others.

The chapter competed in several events throughout out the week.

Carroll County participated in chapter volleyball, ropes course, waterball and tractor driving. Ethan Jones participated in the annual quiz contest and placed fourth out of 23 schools for the fifth week of camp.

The officer team really gelled as a team while competing in chapter waterball and volleyball.  Dustin Rosenbaum also competed in the tractor driving contest during the fifth week of camp.

The Kentucky FFA Leadership Training Center affords students the opportunity to grow as a unit as well as learn from other chapters from around the state.
