International Group Visits Northview High’s Ag Program, FFA

November 14, 2017

The Gulf Coast Citizen Diplomacy Council and the U.S. Department of State hosted an international delegation Monday at Northview High School. The group met with Northview High FFA students and agriscience instructors to learn about the benefits of experiential learning for students and how students are able to translate skills from agricultural education to entrepreneurship activities.

The group is visiting programs such as the Northview FFA to learn leadership strategies and communication skills used to manage political and social challenges.

While on the Northview campus, the international group also had a chance to get up close with the beef cattle raised on site by FFA and agricultural program students.

Participants were from Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, the Palestinian TerritoriesĀ  and Saudi Arabia.
