Students Attend 95th Annual FFA National Convention

Twelve Lorain County JVS FFA Chapter student members attended the 95th Annual FFA National Convention and Expo in Indianapolis to celebrate their accomplishments and find inspiration for their next steps. 
 
Students participated in community service events and attended general sessions, educational tours, and leadership workshops.
 
LCJVS FFA Chapter members spent their day of service at the White River State Park. Students helped create a clean environment for part of the Urban Wilderness Trail by picking up and disposing of trash. 
 
For Beth Berthold, Lorain County JVS FFA Chapter advisor and Landscape and Greenhouse Management instructor, it was great to be at the event in person this year. “The students loved the experience. It was great to see them observe things like rodeos, and career fairs, and hear from incredible speakers in person. I am always grateful when I can take students on trips to allow them to get a well-rounded experience of FFA and agricultural career tech education.” 
 
With more than 65,000 attendees, the FFA National Convention remains one of the world’s largest student events.  
 
Kevin Daviduk, Landscape and Greenhouse Management senior from Amherst, shared that the convention exceeded his expectations. “It was entertaining and fun, and I learned a lot. It was nice to meet other people from Ohio and other states too.”
