The Riverside FFA Officer Team attended the second annual Ohio FFA Legislative Leadership Conference at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.
Participants included Cierra Rhoads, Molly Harshbarger, Bill Walter, Ashlyn Cox and Lindsay Hall.
The conference began with a presentation by a spokesman for the Ohio Farm Bureau about how FFA members can influence their elected officials on agricultural issues. Members also participated in a political simulation conducted by the vice president of the Farm Bureau.
Riverside FFA officers had the opportunity to tour the statehouse, including the House of Representatives and Senate Chamber. At the end of the day, the FFA officers ate lunch with elected officials and listened to remarks by the Ohio FFA Officer Team.
