The West Liberty-Salem FFA Chapter made history by having four American degree recipients in the same year.
Mallary Caudill, Kayleigh Metz, Bryce Wardand Zech Wilcox received their American FFA Degrees at the National FFA Convention last weekend.
The West Liberty-Salem FFA Chapter traveled with Urbana and Ridgedale to National Convention on Oct. 30.
On the first day, members went to opening session where they listened to keynote speaker Bob Goff whose message was, “0 percent drama, 100 percent kindness.”
Also, in the first session, students celebrated 50 years of Women being allowed in FFA.
The next day students went to Traders Point Creamery where they toured the property and learned more about how the business operates. The next stop was Lincoln College Of Technology where students learned they could get 13 certifications in less than 2 years — there were electric and automative programs and much more.
Then students went to the National FFA Center and learned more about the history of the organization and ways former members have paved the way. At the end of the night, the chapter attended Buckeye Bash.
On Friday students explored the convention where they could learn about colleges and companies that are Ag-related and then went to The World’s Toughest Rodeo.
On Saturday, the chapter attended the next to last session of the National FFA Convention where they earned their FFA Degrees.
