FFA chapters from across the country came together in Louisville, Ky., for the 85th annual National FFA Convention during the week of Oct. 28. More than 86,000 members and guests attended this year’s event, shattering past attendance records. The East Central FFA of San Antonio sent five students to this year’s convention, competing in the Food Science and Technology Contest, the Prepared Public Speaking Contest, and the National FFA AgriScience Fair.

The Food Science and Technology team comprised of Tommy Fletcher, Johnna Pieniazek, Randee Terrill, and Chloe Villapando earned a national championship. America’s top 33 teams competed for honors after winning their state contest. Members of this team each earned a $1,000 cash award. Individually, Johnna, who placed fourth, earned a $700 cash award; Tommy placed sixth and earned $400; and Randee placed eighth and earned a $400 cash award. All four students earned gold emblems. Ray Pieniazek coached this gold-emblem team.

Kylie Patterson competed and earned fourth place in the Prepared Public Speaking Career Development event -- the oldest individual contest at the national convention. America’s top 44 speakers competed in the two-day format after winning their state contest. Kylie earned a gold emblem and received an $800 cash award. Lorie Kempen coached Kylie.

In addition, Kylie competed in the National AgriScience Fair, after qualifying by winning the state agriscience fair. This year, more than 500 participants competed. Students must have conducted research and/or an experiment that they would present to a panel of judges. Kylie’s project, “Remoooving the Fungus Among Us,” was selected as the champion in the Animal Systems, Division I Event, thus earning East Central FFA’s second national championship title during the convention. Kylie received an additional $350 cash award for this gold emblem performance. Lorie Kempen coached Kylie.

The East Central FFA had stellar performances at this National FFA Convention. If you have an interest in the East Central FFA, contact the FFA advisors at 210-581-1185.
