FFA Travels to Louisville, KY for FFA National Convention:
Put twenty-one kids in a bus for 16 hours and you’re bound to see a lot a headphones and blankets. Armed with these essentials and more, six Springview FFA kids departed on an adventure that consumed their last week in October and spent it in Louisville, KY instead of sitting in a classroom studying. Kristine, Kylin, Ashley, Jacob, Ty, and Ethan accompanied fifteen of the Rock County kids to the National FFA Convention and Expo in Louisville, Kentucky. These lucky participants attended the convention to watch the Bassett kids compete and to take part in the phenomenal event. Over 65,000 FFA members from all 50 states attended to listen to inspiring speakers, partake in leadership activities, and learn new things at the expo. On the opening night motivational speaker Rick Rigsby spoke about becoming a leader and his humor was a big hit. Thursday morning the kids got to tour Churchill Downs. On Friday Amberley Snyder, a paraplegic barrel racer and breakaway roper, spoke about overcoming obstacles. Although it was a long bus drive, all the kids had a lot of fun and look forward to maybe competing themselves next year. – Summary provided by Ashley
