                On Tuesday October 29th, twelve VH FFA members left for National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. They drove all day and arrived that night. The group participated in many events throughout the week. They attended the Brett Young Concert, many sessions, the Expo, workshops, and other events throughout the week. The group returned home on November 2nd.

                The Floriculture team spent much of their time competing. The group, who placed first at FFA State Convention in April, competed at Nationals. The group consisted of 2 graduates, Shania Knutson and Madison Hansen, and also, Kasi Knutson and Cassidy Sayler. The group placed 23rd overall, with Madison Hansen placing 14th and receiving a gold medal. Shania and

Cassidy getting silver medals, and Kasi getting a bronze medal. Congratulations to them!

                Congratulations to Viborg-Hurley graduates Jacklyn and Allison Knutson for receiving their FFA American Degrees. The American Degree is the highest degree an FFA member can receive.

                Jacklyn is now an Agriculture/FFA teacher at the Canton School District, and Allison is still a student at SDSU and majoring in Agriculture Education. So a huge congratulations to them!
