Felicity FFA members Morgan Smith and Caitlin Obermeyer packaging food for Meals of Hope to help feed more than 58,00 Families at WLC.

Six members of the Felicity FFA traveled to Washington DC June 10-15 for The National FFA leadership conference.

This was a week long conference about leadership and making a difference in their own community.

Each student created a living to serve plan with a goal of implementing a project to help their community. Participants also toured many sites including Arlington cemetery, The Washington monument, The Air and Space museum, The U.S Capitol, and met with Representative Dr. Brad Wensthrup.

Felicity FFA members worked along side three hundred fellow FFA members across the nation to package food for 58,152 families in under two hours.

Members learned the true meaning of living to serve through out the whole conference.

They will be bringing back with them all the knowledge and experience gained from this opportunity to their own chapter to inspire many more Felicity FFA members.
