FFA Students Go to the National FFA Convention

Fillmore Students

Last week, 4 Fillmore FFA members and 1 Alum represented New York State at the 92nd National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis, IN. With a last minute substitution due to illness, the FFA Dairy Judging Team of Kainan Beardsley, Abby Hatch, Harley Miller, and Ada Sylvester overcame adversity in the Dairy Cattle Evaluation & Management Career Development Event to clinch a 16th team placing, securing silver level recognition, after a laborious 2-day event. Individually, Abby Hatch & Ada Sylvester both earned gold level recognition, while Kainan Beardsley & Harley Miller took home bronze. Fillmore Alum Caro Ando walked across stage at Lucas Oil Stadium last Saturday to receive her American FFA Degree. This is the highest achievement one can earn in FFA and it highlights Cara’s dedication to her chapter and state association. A huge congratulations to these 5 dedicated individuals, you make Fillmore and NY so very proud!
