During the Annual Banquet for the Norborne FFA Chapter that was held last night, many students and community members were recognized for their achievements throughout the previous year. This chapter currently has 52 active participants. It was an emotional night for most of members that attended since this will probably be the last time they put on that beautiful blue corduroy jacket.
Past Chapter President, Kaylea Wood, who is a senior said she is very confident in the ability of all the current and future chapter members and officers. Kaylea will be going to Northwest Missouri State to work on her Early Childhood Special Education and Occupational Therapy.
