State FFA Leadership Finals

Five teams from the Marion FFA participated in the State FFA Leadership Development Finals held Dec. 1-3 in Huntsville.  Only the top 20 teams from throughout the state compete.  Marion reached the state finals by finishing in the top two in each event at the area round of competition.  Considering there are over 1200 chapters in the state, this was a huge accomplishment.  Schools compete in one group regardless of school size, classification, etc. which means it put Marion in the same contest as schools from Class A to Class 6A.  No other school in the state of Texas had more than 4 teams in the state finals.  The final results are as follows:

Job Interview – 4th place      Agricultural Issues Forum – 5th place     Senior Skills Demonstration – 11th place

Senior Chapter Conducting – 11th place     Junior Skills Demonstration – 11th place      Congratulations to our incredible students and teachers!!
