Roland-Story agriculture students and FFA members, Nathan Faga, Cale Gregori, Levi Origer, Reagan Schmitz, Sam Skaar, Caden Sporleder, Jackson Sterle and Maddy Stevenson, recently attended the 90th National FFA Convention and Expo in Indianapolis, Ind., with FFA advisor Brad Taylor.
The FFA National Convention is the largest and oldest student run organization convention of its kind in the United States. Over 67,600 FFA members from across the country attended and participated.
“The conference is a real eye opener for students. It exposes them to a variety of potential agricultural careers running from production to biotechnologies,” said Taylor.
While at the convention trip, students went on educational tours to Kenzie Manufacturing in Williamsburg, the Indianapolis Zoo, Conner Prairie, NCAA Hall of Champions and a wildlife refuge in Peoria, Ill. In addition they attended the career fair, business sessions, leadership workshops, shopping mall and a talent show.
