The 2012-2013 Celeste FFA Officer Team, along with over 9,000 Texas FFAstudents, attended the 84th Annual Texas FFA Convention in Corpus Christi,Texas.  The convention was held July 9-13 at the American Bank Convention Center.  In hopes of making a positive difference, the theme for the conference was, “It Starts Here, It Starts Now.”  The goal for the conference was to deliver the message that if FFA students wish to accomplish goals and leave a positive influence in their communities, they must act now.  Celeste FFA Officers attended motivational sessions that taught them how to be leaders.  They heard inspirational keynote speeches by Chad Hymas and Judson Laipply and retiring speeches from the 2011-2012 FFA State Officers.  During the conference, all Celeste FFA Officers had the opportunity to serve as voting delegates and cast votes for their favorite Texas FFA Talent Teams and for the newly elected 2012-2013 State FFA Officers.  Students were entertained with a concert byTexas singer, Wade Bowen, and they enjoyed attending a dance where they met and mingled with students from all over the state of Texas.
