Adeline and Kalsita were part of a group of 11 Sumner FFA students who were all National Finalists in the agriscience fair and ended up with final rankings between 5th and 11th in the country. There were over 67,000 FFA members and guests at the National Convention this year, setting a record for the largest conference in the organization's history.
