Members of the Marion-Florence FFA chapter competed in the state FFA Career Develop­ment Events hosted by Kansas State University in Manhattan May 2-3.

Several teams competed from Marion.

The MHS Agriculture Mechanical and Technical Systems team placed third overall. All four members placed in the top 10 individually. Remington Putter was the third-high individual, Nicholas Stuchlik placed fourth, Ezra Darnall ninth and Jeremy Hett 10th.

Elizabeth Meyer, Cade Harms, Aidan Cairns and Carley Stapleford placed 15th in the state Agriculture Sales CDE.
