The members were: Marilyn Adams, Nicole Hoercshgen, Brittany Beutler, Sarah Robinson, Jarrel Kadavy, Tres Basler, Cade Broadbent, Kelley Marlow, Melissa Barry, and Justin Robinson. Shelly Barry and Patricia Beutler came along for the ride as well. The members enjoyed many visited places: The St. Louis Arch, The Indianapolis 500 Speedway and National Museum, bowling, a haunted warehouse, meeting John Stamos and the Beach Boys, a Beach Boys concert, and a peddler’s mall. But most importantly, the FFA members got to visit the Convention, Career Show, numerous workshops, meet FFA members from all over the country, listen to Henry Winkler or also known as “The Fonz”, and other FFA members share their personal success through the FFA.
On October 30th, Cashion’s FFA Chapter held its annual blood drive. FFA members present dressed up for Halloween and everyone got to pick out from an OSU or OU T-shirt. The blood drive was a major success as 57 people showed up to give blood!

On July 11, the Cashion FFA sent six members to Alumni Leadership Camp in Wagoner, OK. The six members were Corbin Derr,
All the members had a ton of fun while they were there. Everyone got to participate in the ropes course with their respective small groups. Other activities were swimming, basketball, dodgeball, and volleyball, which got very competitive.
There were tremendous motivational speakers who spoke at camp. Bill Cordes, the YOGOWYPI man, which means “you only get out what you put in”, was phenomenal. On the last night, there was a hypnotist that worked his magic on a couple of Cashion kids, Marilyn Adams and Corbin Derr. Nicole Hoerschgen had the honor of singing the National Anthem at the flag lowering ceremonies.
