The Crestview FFA chapter recently traveled to the National
FFA Convention held in Indianapolis and participated in several events during
the five day convention.
First, the Farm Business Management team, comprised of Brett
Schumm, Olivia Skelton, Lizzie Bowen and Liliana Dietrich, competed at the
national level representing the state of Ohio and finished 30th with
a bronze rating.
The 11 current members that attended the convention took part in several tours, attended sessions, talked with colleges, and looked at new machinery. During their downtime, the group was able to attend a “Buckeye Bash” for Ohio chapters and a Garth Brooks concert.
Finally, on Saturday, nine members watched Crestview
graduate Joel Germann receive his American Degree. Only 1% of national FFA
members earn this prestigious degree. After the degree presentation, the
members were able to participate in the closing ceremonies which included an
address from the President of the United States.
