2017 Summer Leadership Camp

Written By: Dr. Parks - Jul• 10•17

This summer 20 students from the Bleckley County FFA chapter attended Summer Leadership Camp (SLC) and were part of more than 3,300 people who attended FFA-FCCLA Summer Leadership Camp 2017, on the banks of Lake Jackson.

Advisors Walt Parks, Doyle Floyd and volunteer Sheryl Parks brought their students to the week-long camp, where they participated in leadership programming designed to build relationships, develop teamwork and leadership attributes, and most importantly, have a great time! Activities included team and individual competitions, dances, the mega slide, the blob, swimming, ropes course, shooting sports, crafts, horseback riding, a muddy obstacle course, and more!

This year’s theme for Summer Leadership Camp was “SLC Unlimited”. Led by the idea that “you don’t get to decide how your story begins, but you do get to decide how it ends”, students were challenged to discover their unlimited future. This theme guided the programming for the week, including skits, challenges, and nightly reflections.

The male students from the Bleckley County FFA chapter attending camp included: Tucker Felkins, Evan Thomas, Tucker Mullis, Nicholas Chapman, Louie Lumley, Daniel Tinoco, Bryan McNair, Dylan Cowart, John Michael Teagle, Carson Berryhill, Jayshon Gardner, Dale Hearn, Josh Albright, and Hunter Lucas. Voted on by the rest of the campers, these young men were awarded Leadership Team of the Week for their excellent example of leadership. Breeann Bohannon, Emmi Coleman Joni Lumley, Lizzy Parks, Olivia Williams, and Courtney Turner, were part of the girls group that earned runner-up Team of the Week.
