Mr. Hodgson searching for the lost van keys.

A group of FFA students went on a trip to Indianapolis, Indiana for the National FFA Convention and Expo. As a student who attended the conference, I can attest it was an inspiring experience for an FFA member. We learned about leadership, hard work, and good character. While on the trip we enjoyed some good laughs, one that will stick with us forever occurred at a gas station. Mr. Hodgson stopped to refill the van with gas, and just before we went to head out he couldn’t find the keys. After briefly searching Mr. Hodgson accused one of us of stealing the keys, although we assured him we didn’t take them, he remained convinced we did. Mr. Hodgson searched in and around the van for the keys and still couldn’t spot them. It wasn’t until he emptied the garbage bag, by the pumps that he found them swimming in the bottom.
