Nearly fifty students from Red Wing High School’s FFA chapter, an integralÂ part of the Agricultural Science program, traveled to Rochester, MN on September 16, 2010 for the Region VIII Fall Leadership Day.
Almost three hundred students from across south eastern Minnesota attended the event. While there, Red Wing students participated in breakout sessions aimed at developing leadership and team work skills and providing opportunities for students to become involved. While at the conference, students met leaders from other schools and had the chance to participate in a number of tours including a horticultural facility and the new Leashes and Leads pet boarding and resort in Rochester.
