MANLIUS – The Bureau Valley FFA Chapter held its annual FFA banquet on March 19 at Bureau Valley High School.

At the end of this meeting, the new FFA officer team was installed. The new FFA officers include Andrew Smith – president, Samantha Haney – vice president, Kelly Sierens – secretary, Kalie Rumbold – treasurer, Lauren Peterson – reporter, and Kristyn Ehnle – sentinel.
