During the 89th Annual National FFA Convention and Expo in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Kenton-OHP FFA Chapter was recognized on stage for receiving a “Three Star Chapter” award. This award is given to chapters that have an annual Program of Activities that includes a series of activities which encourage members to grow as individuals and to serve others. Out of 7,757 chapters in the country, only 173 chapters are awarded this honor. Also while on this trip, students toured the Maria Stein Grain Company they learned the process of maintaining nutrition rations in feeds and new government regulations in the animal nutrition industry. The members also toured Elanco animal health where they learned how to properly use social media and successful interview techniques. At the convention, students attended sessions where they were heard from Diana Nyad, an Author and record holding long-distance swimmer. Members also heard from Jason Brown, an ex-football player that left the National Football League to farm. Members also had the opportunity to explore the Career Show and Shopping Mall. This expo has stands from a variety of colleges and also had presentations of new farm equipment. Students were then treated to a Cole Swindell and Chris Young concert.
