On Wednesday, Nov 15, FTA officers Kaylee Shryer, President, Karys Crawford, Vice President, Nate Harris, Treasurer, and Khloe Hubbard, Secretary attended FTA State Conference sponsored by MSTA at Columbia, MO. There was a college fair, a place to sign a letter of intent for becoming an educator. We had an excellent speaker, Darbie Valenti Huff, who compared education to the show; Friends. Then we voted in our delegates for 2024-2025. Lastly, each chapter had a speaker or two who came up before the entire group and shared what the chapter has done in the past year and future plans for this year as well. Door prizes were given away. sadly we did not get any. Better luck next year! Then we went to lunch and shared new ideas we had learned, that was a nice break. After that, we went to the MU campus and walked around in a mini-tour waiting to meet up with Darah Crawford who took the group to the union, showed us around, and answered questions about college life and her future plans. It was a great day and everyone said they enjoyed it and learned a lot. We are looking forward to several activities coming up pretty quickly at school for FTA.
