So graduation is almost upon us, for those of us that are graduating this year. And that means that it is time for not only endings but also new beginnings. I just had my first taste of that today.
Today, was my final FFA Banquet (sorry, I know it's FFA). It was a very bitter sweet moment. Not only was it the beginning of the end of my agriculture education, but it also reminded me that my time in 4-H is almost over. But, I still have a little bit of time for that. Anyway, back to my banquet. I spoke about how much FFA has taught me. I was reminded of how much I love agriculture by seeing all those excited members. It reminded me of how much I love seeing fellow 4-H members talk about their 4-H experience. And it caused me to think of all the things that 4-H has done for me; so here is my list:
1. Leadership skills (obviously :) )
2. Public speaking
3. It has given me friendships that will last a lifetime (love you council fam!)
5. Networking skills
These are just some of the many skills that 4-H has given me over the past 10 years. And I am sure in my last two years, I will gain even more skills.
