Miranda Depenbusch, from the Udall FFA chapter, completed her term as State FFA reporter after helping to lead the 91st Kansas FFA Convention on May 29–31 on the Kansas State University campus.

Depenbusch represented more than 9,800 Kansas FFA members during her 2018-19 term.

After being elected State FFA reporter in June 2018, Depenbusch traveled across the state sharing her passion for leadership, service and agriculture. She was one of six officers who presented workshops and speeches challenging high school students to serve their community in the spirit of this year’s convention theme, “Just One.”

“Serving as a state FFA officer for this past year has been truly incredible and has given me the opportunity to reach out to members across the state,” Depenbusch said. “Meeting each unique member, growing close to my teammates, and developing the relationships with countless others has fostered irreplaceable experiences and memories that have made me a better version of myself.”

Depenbusch marked the completion of her year of service by presenting her retiring address titled “Love Louder” at the third session of the convention May 30. To read the full text of her address, visit kansasffaconvention.org.

Depenbusch will be a sophomore majoring in Agricultural Education at K-State next fall. She also is a member of College of Agriculture Ambassadors and the Agricultural Education Club.

Miranda is the daughter of Craig and Ronda Depenbusch. Her chapter advisor is Lauren Van Allen.
