FFA students place at national fair


November 8, 2017

Six Logan High School students competed Sept. 22 at the National Future Farmers of America Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Logan FFA members consisted of Mackenzie Lightfoot, Micah Lightfoot, Hannah Bruhn, Cambry Lujan, Kyle Hamilton, and Garrett Bolinger. They were accompanied by their FFA advisor Clay Lightfoot and Bonnie Lightfoot.

On their way they stopped to site see the Gateway Arch, and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

During their week at National Convention they attended sessions, met with colleges and interacted with members from across the nation.

Mackenzie and Micah Lightfoot competed in the National Agriscience Fair.

Mackenzie placed third in the nation with her project entitled “The Race of the Peroxidase," a project demonstrating which type of root vegetable had more of an enzyme called peroxidase. Peroxidase is important because it helps with the overall body condition.

Micah placed sixth in the nation with her project entitled “Apex Meristem Hastened," a project entailing the testing of plant hormones on the mitosis of onion root cells.

While the Lightfoots were competing Bolinger, Hamilton, Lujan and Bruhn attended workshops.
