The 85th Ohio FFA State Convention begins Thursday, May 2, at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus.
State FFA President Shelby Faulkner says it’s a big week for FFA members across the state and while they’ll feature what’s become traditional, Shelby says they’ll also provide some new activities.
“We’re going to be recognizing our teachers and administrators on stage, which I think is very exciting,” Faulkner said. “And then we’re also going to have a concert for the first time ever.”
The concert features Casey James and Aaron Kelly.
Faulkner will be wrapping up her year as State President on Friday, May 3, she describes her year as “insane.”
“I’ve traveled all across the state of Ohio visiting many chapters and meeting students and as busy as I’ve been, I have enjoyed every single moment of it,” said the State FFA President. “I’ve had 15 officers that I’ve been able to watch grow and develop over the year, this is going to be the icing on the cake.”
Following her year as State President, Shelby tells Brownfield she’s going to take some time to relax and then begin taking classes in June at The Ohio State University where she’s majoring in Agriscience Education.
