This year’s theme was to “Electrify” FFA, and out of the many students who attended, Corryn La Rue got to interview three of them.

Emily Cockrum from Paso Robles FFA, is a freshman in high school, Gillian Umphenour from Atascadero FFA is a junior in high school, and Erica Bowles from the Nipomo FFA chapter is a junior as well.
