Bureau Valley FFA attends state convention
SPRINGFIELD – More than 3,000 Illinois FFA high school students – including 11 members of the Bureau Valley FFA chapter – participated in the 2013 Illinois State FFA Convention at the Prairie Capital Convention Center in Springfield.
The 85th annual convention featured a “Growing Legacies” theme inspired by the 2012-13 Illinois State FFA Officer team. The convention celebrated the events of the year and included motivational speakers, recognition of individual and chapter achievement, and election of a new state officer team.
BV FFA member Susan Brummel was recognized on stage during the first convention session as the State Proficiency winner in the area of Agricultural Mechanics Design and Fabrication. Her application will move on to the national level for judging. Retiring chapter reporter Michael Lotspeich and newly-elected reporter Lauren Peterson were also recognized on stage during the fifth general session for placing gold in the state with their chapter scrapbook.
