Members of the Mackay FFA chapter hosted Bryce Cluff, the national FFA vice president for the western region, on Aug. 24.

National FFA officers rarely visit any Idaho FFA chapters, so Cluff's trip was memorable for local youths, Mackay FFA Adviser Trent Van Leuven said. 

Cluff presented workshops for Mackay FFAers on setting and achieving goals. He also worked with the Mackay chapter officers on leadership issues.

After touring the Mackay facilities, Cluff joined Van Leuven, Forest Service employees and Mackay FFAers who are involved in the fish lab, for a trip to Lower Cedar Creek. The FFA members checked on the California golden trout that were stocked in the creek last year.

As Cluff looked over the waterfall and the fish, he told Van Leuven that in his 100,000-plus miles of travel he'd never seen anything like Mackay.
