As the 2014-15 school year for Marion High comes to an end the start of the year for our chapter begins. For the start of the 2015-16 year of Marion FFA we have 3 events planned to attend and/or host which are:
1) Discussion of agricultural issues to students in the 5th grade at our local elementary schools.
2) Illinois State FFA Convention
3) Washington Leadership Conference
Washington Leadership conference as showcased on FFA.org explains that, “During the five-day event, attendees learn how to become effective leaders by learning their purpose, how to value people, how to take action and how to serve others”. If you would like to find out more information can be found in the source below. Carrie White and Haley Easton will be attending this event. Illinois State FFA Convention is the annual event where the state gets to highlight the achievements and events that happens throughout the year. There is also an FFA dance, talent show, and much more. While we do not know who is currently attending this event we usually have 10 to 12 members attend this event and it is always a good time to be had by all.
We would also like to announce that Logan Quance and Misty Hopper were both elected to a office of the section 24 officer team. We wish them the best of luck in their next year with the officer team and cannot wait to see their achievements at the end of the year.
