The 2018-19 Marais des Cygnes Valley FFA Chapter officers took advantage of the National FFA Theme “I Can. We Will” by spending three days, July 16-18, 2018, at Tuttle Creek State Park, Manhattan, Kan.

The three days were spent enhancing their leadership skills, bonding as a team, and organizing the program of activities for the year. Officers also were able to tour the Manhattan Fire Department and the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Science, as well as going swimming and canoeing.

Kansas FFA Secretary Schuyler Zenger enlightened the officers with team building and problem solving activities during the retreat. KSU ag-ed intern Cassandra Ebert, who will be student teaching at Marais des Cygnes Valley High School agriculture education department this spring semester, also joined the officers during the retreat.

Officers Chloe Volkman, Brookelyn Janssen, Kathryn Vaught, Bayleigh Lacey, Grace Bradley, Alaina Marsh, Koby Vanderpool and Frank Warner are excited about getting the year started and have some incredible development activities for the chapter members and community planned for the upcoming year. Some of those activities include the annual organizational luau, elementary agriculture presentations, walk-in movie nights, highway cleanup, Ag Awareness Day, and a hunger awareness presentation and activity.
