For the first time in Morrow County FFA history, the chapter took seven members and three chaperones to the 80th annual National FFA Convention, which was held in Indianapolis. The membership included Ashley Anderson, Jasmine Wagner, Patrick Barron, Makayla Anderson, Angel Rodelo, Casey McClure and Samantha Egge.
The members left Portland's airport after school on Tuesday, Nov. 23, and arrived in Indianapolis early Wednesday morning. While at the convention, the students visited the Henry Clay Estate, Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Louisville Slugger Factory and Museum.
The delegates also got to make quick visits to the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville campuses.
The trip also inspired McClure, Anderson and Barron to continue with the state degrees and inspired Wagner to think about running for a state FFA office.
