SONOMA COUNTY: 3 earn spots at FFA conference

Three Sonoma County students were among 60 high school seniors selected for the recent Sacramento Leadership Experience, a conference presented by California Future Farmers of America.

Courtney King of Petaluma, Taylor Richardson of Healdsburg and Paul Shafer of Sonoma were among the FFA members chosen for last week’s four-day capstone event.

The conference assigns students as mock legislators within state districts to develop skills for solving problems, making decisions and accomplishing goals.

Students tackled issues including agriculture and ethics, water and natural resources, food and nutrition, and education while learning about the role of government, agricultural policy and advocacy through participation in a model Congress.
