Briar Leonard of Walhalla FFA Places 2nd In South Carolina FFA Region 1 Upper Creed Speaking LDE
Briar Leonard of the Walhalla FFA Chapter traveled to Clemson University on Tuesday April 2, 2019 to compete in the SC FFA Region 1 Upper Creed Speaking Leadership Development Event.

Leadership Development Events focus on creating situations for members to demonstrate their abilities in public speaking, decision making, communication and their knowledge of agriculture and the FFA organization. The Creed Speaking LDE is designed to encourage agricultural leadership in younger members. By developing premier leadership and personal growth, students learn speaking skills and respect for the history of the FFA.

Briar placed 2nd in the event. Her placing allows her to compete at the state level competition which will be held at the 92nd South Carolina FFA State Convention (June 11th – 13th) at Clemson University. Josh McCall and Christopher Lunsford are the agriculture teachers and FFA advisors for the Walhalla FFA Chapter.

South Carolina agricultural education serves more than 12,000 students across the state. Students receive instruction in one of five different pathways within the Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources career cluster. The South Carolina FFA Association is comprised of over 7,000 members across the state. The mission of the SC FFA Association is to develop premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
