Once the group made it to Indianapolis they were given an opportunity to go to “Cinch’s World’s Toughest Rodeo.”
On Thursday of the Convention and Expo, the group attended the first general session of the FFA National Convention and Expo. There the FFA Band and Chorus performed, the group heard inspiring words from the National FFA Officers, and listened to the keynote speaker Bob Goff.
After the first session members were able to visit the career center, where multiple agricultural businesses set up allowing members to see what they could do with their future that involved agriculture. Agricultural colleges are also set up to show what they can offer students after high school.
That night the members enjoyed a night of fun and dancing by attending the “Buckeye Bash,” a special dance only for Ohio FFA Chapters.

This year Stephanie is much more relaxed, focused and really demonstrating her full potential. She has done some beautiful work! Stephanie has been a positive role-model for the other students in her work area. This year Stephanie will produce an amazing portfolio of works that represent her very best performance. She is certainly causing other students to take some notice of her achievements, and inspiring them to push themselves a little harder. It is always fun to have a mature and talented senior in the classroom like Stephanie!
