During their full-week trip they toured Zoetis Corporation, the St Louis Archway Monument, Monsanto headquarters, Churchill Downs and the Louisville Slugger Museum. At the convention they attended sessions and also watched the competitions. They had the opportunity to listen to Josh Sundquist, Rick Pitino, Katie Pratt and Joe Torrillo. They also got the chance to listen to all the retiring addresses given by the national FFA officers, including former GHS FFA member Brennan Costello. Members said it was a great learning experience.
