Garber students attend MFE, ALD conferences

ENID, Okla. — Garber FFA members attended the Made for Excellence (MFE) conference and the Advanced Leadership Development (ALD) conference Dec. 1-2 in Tulsa.

These conferences were sponsored by Oklahoma FFA Association and provided members the chance to develop the refine skills that will create a lifetime of leadership.
