It is National Convention Time!
Being a delegate for the great Hoosier state of Indiana is one amazing experience! We arrived Monday around eleven in the morning and have been on the go ever since. The State officers been catching up with friends from the past whether it be Casie's friends she met through her Ag. Communications contest last year at national convention or my old WLC friends. We have all been on the run! Before we started cracking down and working with our committees Tuesday morning, the team made new friends. Tonight I had an amazing opportunity to make some new friends from Pennsylvania; Tyler Claypool and Tyler S. Our half an hour conversation consisted of state convention themes, favorite t.v. shows, and life as a state officer. Tyler Claypool and I even made a secret,awesome possum, Hamburger, hand shake! After that I went to Steak-n-Shake with 14 other friends from about 7 different states! Whether it be all of us wearing Steak-N-Shake hats or giving one of our national officers, Tiffany Rogers, a plate of smarties, we had a great time! The two and a half hour meal has been one of my fondest memories in FFA. I am so blessed and thankful for the opportunities I have had while not only being a delegate but likewise a Representative for Indiana. Thank you all for your support of Indiana FFA and Likewise National FFA! Until we meet again! Live daily, love often, and smile constantly
