Area FFA members attended a state conference for chapter leaders last week at Rock Springs 4-H campgrounds south of Junction City.
State FFA president Elizabeth Meyer of Marion High School and other state officers compared being a local chapter leader to the Olympics and advanced a conference theme, “Carrying the FFA Torch.”
Workshops focused on leadership skills and provided an opportunity to mingle with other FFA members from across the state.
Participants from Centre included Zach Barney, Raeanne Bryant, Dylan Deines, Payton Harms, Grace Knepp, and Greg Oborny.
Marion participants included Aidan Cairns, Ezra Darnall, Devin Soyez, Carley Stapleford, Antone Vinduska, and Meyer, along with her father, chapter adviser Mark Meyer.
“Though our theme may have been the Olympics, these members and advisors all deserve gold medals for their work,” Elizabeth Meyer said in a news release. “Kansas FFA members are going to do great things this year as they focus on carrying the torch.”
