White County FFA was one chapter out of the 230 different chapters from Tennessee represented at the state convention. There were 3,122 people in attendance. The theme was “Transform,” which can relate to anyone in Tennessee FFA. Members of FFA have several opportunities to transform themselves, including career development events, supervised agricultural experiences, and numerous leadership conferences. Even advisors and other stakeholders devote much of their time to FFA and the members, and as a result, are also transforming their lives, too.
Brenda Bray, operational manager of Camp Clements, at Doyle, and a Tennessee FFA staff member, and her husband Dale, were also present at the convention. During the convention, it was announced Camp Clements would be receiving $1.7 million for upgrades at the camp. Camp Clements is the first and the oldest FFA camp in the United States.
