National FFA Leadership Conference
Every year in October, the National FFA Organizations hosts a leadership conference for FFA members across the nation. This year 7 members were selected to attend the 2017 conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. While at the conference, FFA members listen to various keynotes speakers, tour agricultural industries, and meet other members across the country. At this conference East Buchanan was recognized as a two-star chapter, had a member in National FFA Band and two American degree recipients, the chapters first two.
