Bellefonte Area FFA members attended the State Legislative Leadership Conference during March 18-20 in Harrisburg where they had the chance to learn about some politics and also help give back to the community.
FFA adviser Myken Poorman said the first day was spent learning about the legislative process, how bills are made and passed, and more. The second day was dedicated to community service at Hershey Gardens where mulch was laid down and other preparations were made for the spring. The last day began with a legislative breakfast, which included senators, congressmen and women, and other leaders. That was followed by a tour of the capitol building.
Students involved were Mitchell Holden, Lynnsey Kauffman, Gretchen Little, Logan Simpson and Ryan Smith.
