The Hillsboro FFA Chapter recently had the 2018-20 Ohio FFA sentinel from the state FFA officer team, Mallary Caudill, at its school for a workshop day. Caudill spent all day talking to students about being a great influence, reaching your goals and getting past obstacles.
She had teamwork activities for students to work on together. Throughout the day each class did a different activity. One class built a tower out of index cards to work as a team, another class wrote goals on an index card and an obstacle on another, then they put their goal index card in a balloon and “popped the obstacle.”
One question Caudill had for the classes was: “If no one could see, no one could see if you could dunk being 5’2, no one could see the type of shoes you have or car you have, how would people imagine you?” She also had everyone set a goal for 24 hours from that question to figure out how could they help someone.
It was a great day and everyone learned great ways to be a great influence and reach their goals.
