Sedalia, Mo., April 30, 2021 —Larissa Larrick of the South Shelby FFA Chapter placed third in the creed speaking leadership development event at the 93rd Missouri FFA Convention. Sixteen students from six districts were selected to compete at the state level. Larrick’s FFA advisors are Tim Larrick and Kaytlyn Mefford.
