New Beginnings

Freshman year is full of New Beginnings. Everything is new; new school, new teachers, new teams and clubs, and in 2020 new online learning. It might be too much "new" all at once or it might be the "new" you have been craving. Either way, GLC is for you!

This is no ordinary leadership conference! This action-packed day is sure to be a fun way to get to know yourself and meet new people as we explore the new world of Agricultural Education (Ag Ed). Ag Ed and FFA is a home away from home for all and will help as you start to navigate this new beginning. You will spend the day diving into what makes you, YOU! and discovering ways the FFA can help you make the most out of your high school experience.
