Over the time of October 24th- October 26th, the Bellmont FFA chapter had a group of members attend the 91st National FFA convention and Expo.
The group attended various of the Convention's general sessions that were lead by the 2017-2018 National FFA Officer Team, and were able to hear many great keynote speakers including Kyle Scheele, and a performance of Easton Corbin's "Farmer In All of US".
Four of the members in attendance with Bellmont competed in the National FFA Poultry Evaluation Contest. The team consisted of Indiana State Sentinel: Jarrett Bailey, Cassie Fleming, Olivia Conrad and Victoria Fleming. As a team, they obtained a bronze rating, while individually, Jarrett and Cassie earned silver awards, and Olivia and Victoria received bronze awards.
