COLUMBIA, Mo., April 22, 2022 — The Sarcoxie FFA Chapter places sixth in the FFA agricultural issues forum leadership development event at the 94th Missouri FFA Convention.


Sarcoxie team members are Allyson Darrow, Braydon Muller, Emma Parrigon, Kelsi Bagby and Riley Rupp. Sarcoxie advisors are Eugene Meyer and Jeff Rush.


Teams in the agricultural issues forum LDE create a presentation focused on an important agricultural issue faced by their community. Team members give their presentation at least five times to community organizations before competing in the event.


Sponsored by the Northwest Missouri State University Agriculture Department, this event is one of many ways the FFA prepares student members for career success.

LDEs engage student learning and make a real connection to lifetime goals.



The Missouri FFA has 25,626 members representing 353 chapters. The national organization has more than 735,000 members representing 8,817 chapters in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.

The FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
