FFA chapter attends national convention

Members of the Peabody-Burns FFA Chapter attended the National FFA Convention from Oct. 20 through 23. Zac Goodwin, Nick Morgan, Justin Rempel, Derek Schmidt, and Ashley Weems made the trip to Indianapolis, accompanied by sponsors Glen Bechtel, Tim Robertson, and Annette Weems.

On the way to the convention, the group toured the St. Louis arch.

At the convention, students attended the first session of the convention, a band and choir concert, a career fair, and workshops.

The career fair provided students with an opportunity to talk with various college and technical school representatives, as well as employers.

Workshops included leadership, organic farming, and equine topics.

The group attended the last night of the Three Hills Rodeo on Oct. 22 and watched bronco and bull riding.

The students and sponsors returned home Oct. 28.
