Recently Mora High School’s FFA Chapter attended the national FFA convention in Indianapolis.


This fall the Mora FFA Chapter went to Indianapolis, Indiana, for the National FFA Convention. They had amazing once in a lifetime opportunities to meet people from all over the country, meet with representatives from major businesses across the country and tour agriculture related businesses. 

Advisor Jennifer McCauley said, “It was so fun to bring the kids down there and see them find new interests and meet new people from across the country.” 

The Mora FFA Chapter has participated in multiple CDE’s (Career Development Events) this year already. At the University of Minnesota fall invitational two teams competed. The general livestock team was a state qualifier team. The team consisted of Lauryn Showers, Korbin Kahle, Mallory Stanchfeild, Kate Anderson and Ava Showers. A second livestock team went to the event. The team consisted of Kloie Kleven and Grace Hickle. 

Annabel Mcgriff competed in the poultry contest. A horse team consisting of Makayla Rush, Samantha Reed, Kloe Kleven, Ryleigh Rodenborg and Rylee Morphew also competed in the horse contest. The last CDE was milk quality and products and poultry evaluation. The milk quality team consisted of Rylee Morphew, Sammy Reed, Alyssa Sandburg and Hailey Reynolds. The poultry team had one contestant: Bridget Nolan. 

With all of these teams two have qualified for the State competition in April;  Team 1 of livestock and the horse team will be competing against other teams for a chance at Nationals.
