Four Kimball FFA Members attended Leading the Challenge (LTC), a leadership conference Jan. 25 and 26, in Morris, Minn.; these individuals include: Sami Reinert, Cole Czech, Seahara Mancini, and Joelle Edwards. LTC is a Region V conference held every year, run by region officers and is open only to FFA members. There are sessions completely around the ideas of leadership. This year the theme was “Changing the Tide” and the conference was based around changing yourself, being a leader, and new ideas. FFA members also enjoyed skiing, snowboarding and tubing at Andies Ski Hill in Kensington, Minn., where they faced the cold and had a little more than a lot of fun.
