Excitement Builds As Missouri FFA Makes Return To Hearnes Center

Thousands of Missouri FFA members are three days away from experiencing the return of a decades-long tradition, state convention at the Hearnes Center on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia.  State adviser Keith Dietzschold says it will once again be a jam-packed Thursday and Friday for attendees.

Dietzschold adds that after the pandemic prompted a virtual convention in 2020 and a scaled-down event last year on the state fairgrounds in Sedalia, this week’s convention will be back to how it was in 2019.

Missouri FFA State Adviser Keith Dietzschold notes that while no new restrictions are in place for attendees to this week’s convention, he notes parking may be more difficult around Hearnes Center following changes to student parking on the Mizzou campus.
