Nov. 1, 2013, students of the Future Farmers Association (FFA) visited the Nashville Auto Diesel College (NADC). The members of FFA met each other from high schools all over America. This national convention hosted schools around Lecanto High School (LHS) like South Sumter High School (SSHS) and schools from all around America like Crowder High School (CHS) in Oklahoma.
Students had a chance to tour the campus of NADC and better their knowledge of farming.
“We toured the NADC college,” said junior Dalton Fezeil. “It gives us valuable information about a lot of the jobs most of the FFA students are interested in.”
Not only did students have a tour of the school, but they also got a chance to enjoy a day off.
“It was a lot of fun,” said junior Shawn Anderson. “A lot of us got hypnotized, and some students and schools won awards.”
“I had a great time,” said Fezeil. “It was really educational, but I had a really fun time relaxing too.”
This convention is a nationwide convention with high schools from all around America participating.
“It was really cool to see how many schools there were and where they were from,” said Anderson. “There were schools from around LHS and about everywhere else.”
The FFA National Convention is a great experience according to many FFA students and will help them in their pursuit for an agricultural career.
“It was an incredible experience,” said Fezeil. “I really hope that I can go back to the convention in Nashville again.”
