Over the 2018 summer three students traveled to FFA Camp. The theme for the camp this year was “Survivor.” They were split up into groups where they competed against each other in basketball, kickball, volleyball, and a bunch of other sports.
Every day they would work with the State FFA officers doing multiple leadership activities.
Every night they would split into their tribes and have reflections which was where they would go and talk about something that impacts everyone or they would tell motivational stories.
Over the summer 14 TCN-MVCTC students showed and entered projects at the 2018 Preble County Fair.
