COLUMBIA, Mo., April 22, 2022 – The Silex FFA Chapter placed fifth in the FFA knowledge career development event at the 94th Missouri FFA Convention. There were 53 teams in the competition.

The team members include Mckenna Claborn, Claire Kinion, Cecilia Southerland and Niki Carroll. Claborn was named top individual, Kinion placed 28th, Southerland placed 37th and Carroll placed 52nd out of 107 participants. The Silex FFA advisors are Sean O’Brien and Lindsey Lasater.

The knowledge teams spend numerous hours studying for the 100-question test covering FFA history and information on the National FFA Organization.

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