Eighteen members of the Westfall FFA Chapter recently attended the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Kentucky. The members were joined by advisors Rick Metzger and Rachel Scior and Westfall Local Schools Superintendent Mrs. Cara Riddel.
While on the trip, members toured Jungle Jym’s, a 200,000 square foot grocery store in Cincinnati that features foods from all over the world. They also toured a tobacco farm in southern Indiana and the Louisville Slugger factory and museum in Louisville. At the convention members attended the opening session featuring National President Clay Sapp and motivational speaker Rick Pitino. They also attended the second, sixth and eighth sessions which featured national chapter awards, proficiency awards and the presentation of American Degree awards.
