Seven members of McConnellsburg’s FFA chapter attended the 83rd National FFA Convention last week in Indianapolis, Ind. Emily Wenschhof, daughter of Ed and Lisa Wenschhof, performed in the National FFA Chorus throughout the week, and could be seen frequently on national TV. Other members including Kirsten Mellott, Ashley Penwell, Tyler Long, Kristin Hawbaker, Courtney Deshong and Haken Covert, spent the week attending convention sessions, the FFA career show and touring various local farms and businesses. “It was a great week,” exclaimed junior Kristin Hawbaker. “There was so much to see at the career show.” “I really liked touring the apple orchard and the Indiana Downs,” added Kirsten Mellott. “I am so glad I got the opportunity to go.” 047p1.jpg
