President Trump speaks to FFA

A highlight this year for Marion/Florence FFA members who attended the National FFA Convention Oct. 25-27 in Indianapolis was a speech by President Donald Trump.

The president reminded members that farmers fought the war for our independence, farmers developed the country, and farmers provide the food and fiber everyone needs for life.

The president was preceded by Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue.

Elizabeth Meyer ran for national office. She was previously selected as an officer candidate from Kansas and was one of only 23 members nationwide who were finalists for a national position.

Members attending from Marion included Peyton Ensey, Cassie Meyer, Lane Watkins, Mickelly Soyez, Gracie Mackey, and Karlee Fetrow.

Mark and Marsha Meyer served as sponsors.
