LaRue County FFA members attended camp July 11-15 at the Kentucky FFA Leadership Training Center in Hardinsburg.
While at camp, members took classes that focused on leadership skills. The officers and committee chairs received training to help them better serve their chapter.
While at camp, members developed their leadership skills by participating in many activities including the ropes course and the quiz contest. The ropes course included teambuilding activities such as the trust fall. Participants had to fall off a platform and be caught by their teammates.
The quiz contest focused on FFA history. Kyle Devary, a LaRue County junior, finished in third place.   
On the fourth day of camp the LaRue County officer team presided over the night session. This was the first meeting conducted by the 2011-2012 team. LaRue County was one of four counties that presided out of the 21 counties present. The LaRue County officers are Jamie Price, president; Brittany Corbin, vice-president; Ben Tucker, secretary; Caleb Whelan, treasurer; Michelle Benningfield, reporter; Jared Whitlock, sentinel; Danielle Fancher, student advisor; Jesse Hornback, parliamentarian; and Ashley Cottrell, chaplain.
Campers were given points for leadership in their classes.
The top 10 percent of campers were acknowledged for their leadership. A LaRue County junior, Jared Whitlock, received this award.
