FFA students attend convention PDF Print E-mail

During the National FFA Convention held in Indianapolis, Ind., nine students from Perkins County were able to attend. Taylor Boldt, Bobby Kugler, Rachel Patrick, Lacey Jensen, Jessie Woodmancy, Jessyca Briggs, Callie Meyer, Caleb Breazeale, and Blake Poppe were among those who went, accompanied by Doug and Lisa Babbitt as their sponsors.
While they were at the convention, they talked to many people from different states, attended seminars, and viewed farm equipment and other vehicles. They attended the Career Show where over 1,400 venders and colleges had displays showing their agriculture departments.
Some highlights of the trip were visiting the Lucas Oil Stadium, eating at Ruth Chris’s, going to the Toby Keith concert, and shopping.
The trip began on Monday afternoon as they left for the long drive to Indianapolis and ended when they arrived back home Sunday morning.
