April 30, 2017
Reinbeck Courier

The 89th Annual State FFA Convention and Expo was recently held in Ames, Iowa. It was held on Iowa State University's campus on April 9-11 and this year's theme was TRANSFORM Purpose to Action. The keynote address was by Kevin Laue who is 7 feet tall and is the first player to play NCAA Division I basketball who was missing a limb. His inspirational story challenged everyone to think about the challenges facing others, and to see your own problems in a new light.

The Grundy Center FFA participated in many events throughout the convention and was extremely pleased with their success! Listed are the awards that the chapter received:

Poultry Judging Bronze: Brianna Heltibridle, Abby Feldpausch, and Leah Mosher, Libby Ross
