Local FFA members attend national convention

PAWHUSKA — Ten members of the Pawhuska FFA Chapter recently attended the National FFA Convention at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, Ky.

While attending the convention, these 10 members had many opportunities to develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success. Three different keynote speakers took the stage — Amberley Snyder, Brad Montague, and Dr. Rick Rigsby — sharing the inspirational stories of their lives, recounting both their successes and failures.

“When common people do common things in uncommon ways, they command the attention of the world,” said Dr. Rick Rigsby.

The FFA members also had the opportunity to explore the annual National FFA Career Fair & Expo, exploring career and educational opportunities from more than 450 industry-leading exhibitors.

With more than 60,000 individuals in attendance, the National FFA Convention is the largest youth organization gathering in the United States: well representative of one of the largest youth organizations in America comprised of more than 600,000 members nationwide.
