INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – FFA national convention is something FFA members all over the United States look forward to every year. It is a convention where almost 70,000 members from all over our nation come to listen to guest speakers, go on agricultural tours, compete and so much more.
This year, one of the state officers, who is a graduate of Southeast High School, Bree Coxbill, was able to compete in extemporaneous speaking. Coxbill earned bronze out of a large amount of people.
Along with Coxbill, five members were also able to attend to obtain the full experience of the weeklong convention. Our members were able to attend several sessions in the Lucas Oil Stadium, the career fair, the shopping center and a hypnotist show.
In addition to the convention, they were also taken on numerous tours of Churchill Downs, a historic plantation, a historic mental hospital, a Pony Express station, Indianapolis Speedway, a Sod house in Gothenburg, War Memorial Museum and Fair Oaks Farm.
This was overall a great experience for our members, and it showed them the importance of being you, and following your dreams.
