Five students from Southern Door High School and one teacher are participating in the Future Farmers of America National Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana this week. Brianna Bongle, Natasha Steinhaus, Dennis Counard, Annie Simonar, and Andrea Vandertie along with their advisor Ann Glowacki, left Tuesday by bus for the convention. Glowacki, an Agricultural Science teacher at Southern Door, describes what the students will experience this week in Indianapolis.
Glowacki says the students toured a Subaru plant on Tuesday and will be at the FFA National Convention until Saturday. The convention is back in Indianapolis where it can hold up to 66,000 people compared to smaller venues in Kansas City, Missouri, and Louisville, Kentucky, according to Glowacki.
