National FFA Convention Highlights

The Greenville High School FFA Chapter attended the 87th Annual National Convention in Louisville, Kentucky this fall.

“While we were out there our chapter was recognized as a Two Star National Chapter Award Winner, which has to do with our involvement in the community,” Chapter Advisor Steve Zimmerman told WGEL. “We saw some keynote speakers and listened to the retiring addresses of national officers. We also had the opportunity to tour the Career Expo, which included over 300 different ag-related companies.”

During their trip, the students also toured Churchill Downs and the Louisville Slugger factory and visited numerous farms and agriculture businesses and organizations.
