The Madison Ag Department went to the National FFA Convention Oct. 20-23 in Indianapolis. Only one school is chosen to represent each state. Eight students competed against students from 25 other states for national recognition. Nationals is a huge event and one school is chosen to represent a state.
“It wasn’t anything like I thought, having a sea of blue jackets from different states,” senior Ariel Jones said.
Geraldine Franco, Brittany Jacobson Emily Myers and Andrea Shepard represented floral, while Jones, Mary Lavender, Tasha Womack and Patty Ward participated in the science fair, and did extremely well, placing top in the nation. Lavender and Jones placed first, while Womack and Ward placed third.
“I’m always proud when they win and even when they lose too,” FFA sponsor Josh Anderson said.
