During the week of October 27-November 4, Yosemite Future Farmers of America (FFA) Chapter Vice-President Helena Johnson Lusk, and Chapter Sentinel Corin Lamont, attended the FFA National Convention in Louisville, Kentucky.
There were over 60,000 members in attendance for the convention from across the United States.
While at the convention, the girls attended leadership sessions and workshops which allowed them to learn about communication, chapter events, and leadership skills they are able to bring back to the FFA Chapter. They also had the opportunity to watch the top four contestants for the FFA Creed Competition.
During their days at convention, Johnson Lusk and Lamont learned many new leadership skills that they plan on implementing into the local Yosemite High School FFA chapter, as well as their work in the local community.
Following the convention, Johnson Lusk and Lamont traveled to Washington D.C.
While there, they had the opportunity to learn about their nation’s history by visiting the Smithsonian Museums and the National Monuments. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience for the Yosemite FFA students.
They would like to thank their advisor, Ms. Jordana Shandor, for accompanying them on this trip and for her guidance with the Yosemite FFA program. Additionally, they would like to thank their parents and the community for making this experience possible.
