Six members from the Aurora FFA Chapter attended the State FFA Leadership Camp from June 26 – 30. Levi Mooneyham, Todd Allen, Kensie Darst, Faithlynn Jung and Jacklyn Merritt each earned their State FFA Leadership Medal.

The camp, sponsored by the Missouri FFA Association, was held at Camp Rising Sun located within the Lake of the Ozarks State Park. The Institute provided leadership training for over 1200 high school students who are members of FFA across Missouri. The high school students are trained by State FFA officers as well as the Leadership Director who is a past State FFA Officer. Students learn how to overcome obstacles and develop their communication and personal skills.

The National FFA Organization makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. Nationally there are over 500,000 FFA members. Missouri ranks sixth in the nation with over 25,000 FFA members.
