FFA AT NATIONALS
The following was submitted by Michelle Harrison, senior member of Future Farmers of America (FFA). More than 65,000 students and FFA educators came together to honor agriculture at the 88th National FFA Convention and Expo in Louisville, Ky., October 28-31. Students from every state, including Puerto Rico and the U.S Virgin Islands spent the week competing in different career development events, working at a Hall of States booth, exploring the expo center, participating in workshops, attending sessions put on by the National officers, making friends, and developing memories that will last a lifetime. Five students from Carson High School made the trip to Louisville. Holly Strasser, Michelle Harrison, Whitney Bibee and Jose Cazares built and worked at the Hall of States booth while Hayden Story competed in Dairy Handler. The Hall of States booth focused on the mining and agricultural side of Nevada and Hayden left it all in the ring bringing back a silver medal. This convention showcases the importance of agriculture and the incredible impact it has on the youth of the United States. CHS couldn’t be more proud of Hayden Story. Students in Mr. Mann’s agriculture classes are counting down the days until the 89th National FFA Convention and Expo which will take place in Indianapolis, Ind., next year.
