FFA stands for “Future Farmers of America.” These letters are a part of our history and our heritage that will never change.

The National FFA Convention is a conference no one on the trip will forget. The FFA students went to Louisville, Kentucky. The trip was five days long, and it began on October 26 and ended on 31. The students who participated are Gage Cleaver, Caitlin Dreher, Gentry Dougherty, Emily McKarnin, Mikaela Platt, and Clara and Isaiah Wicoff. Also, Charlie Kerr and Martin Bambick participated in these activities.

At the FFA Convention they went to learning seminars and workshops, the Kentucky Derby museum, and the Louisville Slugger Bat Factory. The workshops consisted of motivational speakers, such as Rick Rigsby from Texas, and Amberley Snyder. Snyder is a professional barrel racer. She had an accident where she is now paralyzed from the waist down. This sessions were most definitely educational.

Clara Wicoff placed in the Silver division at the National FFA Convention in the area of prepared public speaking. She was in the top 20% of those competing.
