Members of the Marais des Cygnes Valley FFA chapter were recognized at the annual East Central District banquet Wednesday, April 6, 2022, in Eudora, Kan. MdCV FFA members Cole Lacey, Wyatt Lingenfelter, Braden Reed, and Akaylee Prunty achieved the highest honor the Kansas FFA Association can bestow on a member, the State FFA Degree. The degree is awarded annually at the State FFA Convention to those members who have met the minimum qualifications set forth by the Kansas FFA Association and National FFA Organization. The state degree recipients will also be honored at the Kansas FFA Convention late this spring in Manhattan.

MdCV FFA members Olivia Lacey and Alyssa McCurdy also attended the banquet as delegates representing the chapter in electing the newly installed 2022-23 East Central District officers. They also represented the chapter as it was recognized a National Superior Chapter Award honoree.

FFA’s National Chapter Award Program is designed to recognize FFA chapters that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization. Chapters are rewarded for providing educational experiences for the entire membership.
