High school students from across the state recently attended Leadership Summit, a week-long event that challenged students to build leadership skills as well as learn methods for effectively addressing issues of agricultural policy and food security on a global and local level. Attendees were introduced to leadership personality types and worked in collaboration with other students and organizations to solve current issues.

Tennessee Farm Bureau President Jeff Aiken said, “The students we send to Tennessee Leadership Summit are top-notch individuals in their respective counties and we feel this week-long conference has helped them become even more active citizens and future leaders in our organization.”

Tennessee Farm Bureau, in cooperation with county Farm Bureaus, sponsored 54 students to attend the leadership summit and each student was challenged to take what they learned home to their respective county and continue to lead within their community.
