The week of State Convention is finally here! I have been anxiously awaiting State Convention since March 19th when I placed as a top speech finalist in the Senior Prepared speaking contest. The placings will be announced on stage with the 1st place winner presenting his or her speech in front of the entire convention. I have been striving to present my speech on the big stage since freshman year when I watched another FFA member receive the honor. I have been presenting my speech a couple times a week to be ready if they call my name for 1st place. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
My FFA chapter is also putting the last minute touches on our agenda for the trip. We will be taking a tour of the Crew Stadium where we will learn about the turf industry and what it takes to prepare the field for a soccer game. We also are hoping to go behind the scenes at the Columbus Zoo or tour the Bob Evans Test Kitchen between sessions.
The Fort Loramie FFA is really excited for the two day trip to the State Convention. We will be taking tours, meeting new people, and cheering on our member as they walk across stage to receive awards. Hope to see you there!!
