Oct 29 through Nov. 1 the El Dorado Springs FFA chapter sent 26 people to the FFA National Convention. We shared a charter bus with the Stockton FFA to Louisville, KY, where the event was held.

Wednesday both chapters toured the Louisville Slugger factory and the Kentucky Horse Park.

Thursday the chapters headed to the Kentucky Expo Center and joined over 20,000 other FFA members at National Convention ceremonies. It was an awesome experience for everybody to see this event. During the ceremony Rick Pitino, a very successful basketball coach, spoke.

Afterward we attended the National FFA Mall and the many educational booths setup for members to see. Friday we made it back home.

This was a very inspiring event and it was a true honor to those who attended.
