Cole Barnes, Bryson Hardy, Kyleigh Norwood, Lauren Woods and Alysa Wright from the Winder-Barrow High School FFA chapter attended the 92nd National Convention and Expo in Indianapolis, Ind., from Oct. 29 through Nov. 1 with FFA advisors Ashley Best and James Hale. Members spent five days learning more about premiere leadership, personal growth and career success. Students went to workshops, including “Riding The Woah: Finding Comfort And Discomfort,” where they learned how discomfort can bring personal growth, and the workshop called “Just Dance Dilemma Solver.” In that workshop, they learned new activities to plan for chapter meetings. On Oct. 31, everyone attended the FFA Blue Room. In the Blue Room, students had the opportunity to hear from the NASA Administrator, James Bridenstine, about the enhancement of agricultural technologies to ensure a more efficient and sustainable future. Members also attended a Brett Young concert with special guest Tenille Townes. On Nov. 1, Caleb Lee, Mariah Lynn, Kerrigan Royster, Katie Sonntag and Shana Tuggle from the WBHS chapter received their American FFA degrees, the highest award in the organization.
