Favorite Memory Best Laugh Farewell ROLC! ROLC (Regional Offi cer Leadership Conference) is the fi rst conference that we put on and our fi rst “member” event. From tasting oysters to our epic dance, to slaying the volleyball tournament, it was a magical experience seeing our team come together. ROLC gave our team something to be proud of and provided a foundation for the rest of our year. As a part of MFE, Jace and Sam act out a story that Amanda is narrating to learn continuous renewal. At the Ontario MFE, Jace and Sam are acting out the story, riding a bike for two, when Sam has to take a squat. During the bike dismount and squat attempt, Sam’s slacks bust open at the seams- decimating his pants and providing a...memorable scene. We still laugh about exposing the members to new things. Thank you so much for providing me the fulfi llment and purpose in my life that even adults search for. I thoroughly loved hearing your stories, teaching in your classrooms, and having fun at conferences. As much as I would love to do this forever, congratulations to the new team, and I wish them the best of luck as they forge their own path as state offi cers. Thank you for the journey of a lifetime. Witnessing the participants of MFE Conferences across the state share their Promise Cards! We asked students to think of a promise they need to make & hold themselves accountable to. Hearing students share what is in their heart and show courage in sharing these powerful promises was a memory that I will never forget. Sam & Conner brought home Nerf guns one day... We spent the rest of the afternoon in the most intense Nerf gun war known to man! To the members of California FFA - from the bottom of my heart, thank you for one of the most memorable and transformational years of my life. Thank you for giving me a family, a purpose and many blessings. ...thank you for one of the most memorable and transformational years of my life. I cannot wait to see all of the incredible things you continue to accomplish. I am proud to wear a jacket that says California across the back. Thank you are two words I cannot say enough. One of the coolest opportunities we had this year was meeting Mike Rowe at the FFA Foundation Gala! It was fascinating to learn all about the “Dirty Jobs” he has gone through and how many of those jobs showcase the true dedication of the individuals in agriculture. The team and I decided to eat outside and set up a picnic. Just as we got everything in place I went to take a bite only to completely collapse from my chair and fall on the ground. The bad news: my food went down with me. Wow, each and every single day I am in awe of the talent FFA members possess. All of you have something inside of you that shows your true passion for the organization and industry I have fallen in love with, agriculture. From the chapter visits to conferences and everything in between, thank you for the hard work and dedication you have poured into FFA. I will treasure the memories made and am beyond grateful to all of the FFA members I have been fortunate enough to encounter. Thank you for giving me the year of a lifetime and continue to pursue greatness in your lives’. { Continued on page 9 } California FFANEWS • PAGE 8 • Summer 2017 Favorite Memory Best Laugh Farewell ROLC!
