National FFA Convention



National Convention 2018

Day 1


2018 National Convention Group

There's a couple things that start to become a habit to FFA members. One being waking up early in the morning to attend either conventions, conferences, meetings, or anything else the FFA is holding that day. October 23th, 2018, 9 Kiel FFA members found themselves up before 6 in the morning getting ready & waiting in a parking lot for a big coach bus. Along with 5 other FFA chapters, Kewaunee, Mishicot, Brillion, Valders and Sheboygan Falls, 56 students were on their way to the 91st national FFA convention. On our way down to Indianapolis, we stopped at many touring sites. The FFA member’s first stop was at Right Start Kennel. FFA members got to experience what dog training is and how dogs react to different situations. We saw many dogs and their connection with their owner Jim Van Engen, who got his start training dogs at the early age of 17 when he became the proud owner of a Labrador retriever. We heard stories about how the business started and how it continues to grow and prosper. Our next stop, the Baii seed company, in West Chicago. Here we learned how seeds are grown, packaged, coated, stored and sold. After the tour FFA members and advisors found themselves back on the road driving to Lafayette. After driving many miles, we all were getting hungry, the whole group had to split up into groups to make new friends. After doing this half of the group went to the escape room while the other half went out to eat. When everyone was done we all got onto the bus and drove to the hotel to call it a night.
