FFA Members Transform at State

By Susan Venteicher

Twenty-four FFA members transformed at state convention during the week of Wednesday, April 5, through Friday, April 7, as they traveled to Lincoln to celebrate the 89th State Convention.

On Wednesday the members arrived at their hotel, Cornhusker by Marriot, and got dressed in official dress for the evening. Then they traveled to Pinnacle Bank Arena for the opening session. At the session, advisor Matt Neal received a certificate for being a new advisor. Afterwards, the members listened to keynote speaker Matt Lohr.

Thursday consisted of the members attending competitions, workshops, and sessions. The welding team competed in the morning. Also, in the morning a few members completed a scavenger hunt and won a T-shirt. The members had to provide lunch for themselves and could choose to attend workshops. For supper that evening, the chapter went out for a meal.

On Friday the members attended the morning session to see fellow member Quentin Anderson receive his proficiency award. He got first out of the top three proficiency recipients in his category Equine Placement. Before the next session that the members attended they had the afternoon to themselves to attend workshops and eat lunch. At the next session that was attended, Carter Anderson received second and a medal for welding at CDEs. At the final session the convention, Carter Anderson walked the stage for his brother Quentin Anderson to receive the state degree. Right after Carter walked, the members left Lincoln to return home.

“It was an honor to receive a plaque representing an area of my life that I am so passionate about, that being horses. Also, it was great for Pierce to be recognized at state convention,” said Quentin Anderson.
