Eight students from the West Carroll FFA chapter traveled to Indianapolis, Indiana, October 29 to November 2 while attending the National FFA Convention. During the trip members had the opportunity to tour Murray State University’s equine facilities and observe a beginner equestrian class. While attending the convention four freshmen FFA members received their iconic blue corduroy jackets.
While enjoying the Hoosier state’s capital they also visited the Colt’s stadium where they watched the first convention opening session. On Thursday night, FFA members enjoyed the Cinch Rodeo where they cheered on local UT Martin contestants. Over the course of the week long-trip students toured Beck’s Hybrids where they learned about plant breeding as well as Reynolds’s Equipment where they learned about Ag Business and the newest products from John Deere.
Throughout the entire trip West Carroll FFA members were able to meet and network with other chapters and explore post secondary opportunities from colleges around the globe and the industry’s biggest leaders helping cultivate tomorrows agricultural leaders.
