     The Stanley Cup, the World Series, the Super Bowl... The National FFA Convention.  In other words, the ultimate FFA fan's dream come true. As an AG educator an FFA advisor we are blessed with many opportunities to travel and this week we are all heading to Indianapolis, Indiana for the National FFA Convention. The 'sea of blue jackets' that will walk the city this week is a rewarding and refreshing experience. It is the moment that we have all prepared for.  It will be a busy and exciting week full of leadership activities, CDE Competitions, Award Banquets and recognition for all of the hard work,effort and time that we have dedicated to prepare our students to become the leaders of tomorrow.

     This is an exciting convention for me. After six years of teaching, I have five American Degree Recipients and a National Officer Candidate.  All of those hours of hard work do pay off. It is extremely rewarding to see the accomplishments of our students. Times like now are why we continue to give freely of our time. 

     Good luck to everyone and safe travels. Enjoy convention and relish in the accomplishments of your students. Don't forget to pat yourselves on the back for a job well done!
