The Felicity-Franklin FFA sent three students to Washington, D.C. to learn about improving our community through the FFA motto “Living to Serve.” These students, Sarah Hoog, Nina Cadigan, and Kolbie Brandenburg, created Living to Serve projects that will help our Felicity community. The conference was held from June 6-11, 2017. The students toured Arlington Cemetery, Mount Vernon, World War II Memorial, and the Korean War Memorial. They also met with Anne Knapke, Legislative Director for Senator Klobuchar from Minnesota, and discussed policies affecting agriculture and education. Knapke is a former member of Talawanda FFA in Butler County and a former National FFA Officer. The conference will host over 2000 FFA members this summer, serving as the National FFA’s premier leadership event.
