DECATUR - Mendota FFA members Karli Althaus and Julia Krueger attended the annual 212° conference at the Decatur Conference Center and Hotel, on Feb. 7 and 8. Both students are freshmen at Mendota High School.

This two-day statewide event is designed for first-year members. The focus of the conference is student development and it helps FFA members become aware of all aspects of personal growth. After attending sessions on mental, emotional, physical, and social growth, students leave with a personal plan for self-improvement.

212° - the temperature at which water boils – focuses on taking students to the boiling point of personal leadership. At 211°, water is extremely hot, but just one more degree gets it to the next level.

FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
