Cairo High School FFA earns a Silver Star and placed 15th in the nation at the National FFA Farm and Agribusiness Management Career Development event at the 92nd National FFA Convention the last week of October. The event was held in conjunction with the 92nd National FFA convention & Expo in Indianapolis.
The national convention is designed to test the ability of students to apply economic principles and concepts in analyzing farm and ranch business management, as well as a problem-solving analysis section. Each team in the event had competed with other chapters in their state to earn the privilege of participating in the national event.
Cairo High’s FFA Farm and Agribusiness Management team consisted of Thomas Jones, Ian Batey, Jalyn Ross and Meredith Renaud. The team earned three Gold individual stars and one Silver Star.
The event, held at the Crowne Plaza in Indianapolis is one of many educational activities at the convention and expo where FFA members practice the lessons learned in agricultural education classes.
“Feeding a world of more than 9.7 billion people by the year 2050 is not a task that we can face alone. We look forward to continuing our 75-year partnership with FFA and exploring innovative new ways to feed, clothe, and shelter the worlds,’’ said Amy Allen, manager, national corporate contributions, John Deere.
Mr. Del Lecy of Minnesota served as superintendent of this year’s event.
