Tully FFA Travels

An Opportunity of a Lifetime! On October 24-27, 2018, five Tully FFA members had the opportunity to travel to Indianapolis, Indiana for
the 91st National FFA Convention and Expo. Dalton Currie, Angela Touchette, Sydney Grosso, Meghan Weaver, and Cheyenne McCormick
traveled to the convention and toured Batavia Turf (NY ), Wilson Football (OH), Buckeye Hybrids (OH), Wright State University (OH), Fair Oaks
Farms (IN), and Louisville Slugger (KY ). Once at the convention and expo, FFA members participated in leadership and career development
workshops, took part in the college and career fair, listened to amazing keynote speakers during sessions, and even attended an “FFA only”
Garth Brooks concert. Lastly, of the 69,000 people at the National FFA Convention this year, 10,000 of those FFA members got the chance to
be in the same room as the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and the Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Purdue. Every year the
National FFA organization, which is chartered by the Federal Government, invites the President to the National Convention. The last President
to visit was George H. W. Bush in 1991. Prior to that was Jimmy Carter in 1978. Regardless of political preference or personal opinion of the President,
this was a once in a lifetime experience for these Tully FFA members
