FFA Members Attend State Convention
FFA members at State convention

On July 5-9, Lindsay FFA members attended the 93rd Texas FFA Convention in Fort Worth where they had an opportunity to listen to state officer retiring addresses and new candidate speeches, attend leadership workshops and hear from special guest speakers.

Amberley Snyder was one keynote speaker this year, sharing details of her life story which inspired the movie Walk. Ride. Rodeo. Lindsay students participated in leadership workshops titled  “S.M.A.R.T. Goals” and “An Attitude of Gratitude.”

Congratulations to Stephen Fuhrmann on receiving his Lone Star Degree, the highest degree obtainable at the state level.

This year’s officer team really strengthened their bond and their value for teamwork throughout the convention experience. These new skills and experiences will serve the officers and members of Linsday FFA throughout the 2021-22 year as they develop into the leaders of tomorrow so that they may ELEVATE their lives, school, and community.
