This year, the 86th National FFA Convention was held in Louisville, Ky., Oct. 28 through Nov. 2.  The convention contained a huge career show and motivational speakers such as the key note speaker Rick Pitino, the head men’s basketball coach at  the University of Louisville.  The theme this year was “Ignite.”  FFA members were told to fuel passion, spark action and ignite FFA to inspire others to take part in FFA. Those attending were Cheyenne Morgan-President, Paige Chupp-Vice President, Cassidy Fankhouser-Reporter, Shelby Snodgrass-Secretary, Elizabeth Bond-Treasurer, and Trenton Pierce-Sentinel. While visiting Kentucky, the Chouteau FFA officer team visited Lexington to watch the Alltech National Horse Show. On Friday the team visited the famous race track, Churchhill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. On the tour, members went through the museum and saw horse races on the famous track.
