Last Wednesday the Marysville FFA Chapter participated in the Sectional Opening and Closing Ceremonies held at River Valley High. The Opening and Closing Ceremonies is a speaking competition against teams of six across the Sierra Buttes FFA Section. The competition is the first step for students to step out of their comfort zone and own in their speaking capabilities.
Marysville FFA had one of the most successful years attending this competition. They brought seven teams to the competition and six of them went to the second round, a success within itself. All of their teams placed top four in their categories. two of the teams placed first place, another second place, two third place, and one fourth place. Out of these teams there were eight high individuals meaning they were the best in their office compared to everyone who participates totaling over three hundred members; Kayden Walker was Outstanding Novice Secretary, Spencer Slocum was Outstanding Novice Sentinel, Alyssa Baggett was Outstanding Novice Reporter, Hailey Green was Outstanding Novice Treasurer, Jariyah Lott was Outstanding Novice Vice President, Kyler Howell was Outstanding Advanced Sentinel, Madi Dickinson was Outstanding Advanced President, and Crystal Alvarez was Outstanding Officer Treasurer.
The Marysville FFA Chapter has started the competition season strong and will continue to provide students opportunities to compete and build upon their speaking ability and knowledge of the agriculture industry.
Congratulations to Marysville FFA for another remarkable competition and good luck in your future competitions.
