Miranda Flores, of the Henrietta FFA chapter, placed second in the Texas FFA Spanish Creed Invitational Speaking Contest at the 85th annual Texas FFA State Convention held July 8-12 in Dallas.
In the interest of premier leadership, personal growth and career success, the Texas FFA Association offered an opportunity for students to compete in the fourth annual Spanish Creed Speaking Invitational Event, which is the only Spanish language Creed speaking event outside of Puerto Rico. The FFA Creed is a five-paragraph statement recited by members to reflect their growing belief in agriculture and agricultural education. The Creed delivery and the five-minute question-answer period were conducted entirely in Spanish.
The 85th annual Texas FFA State Convention recorded more than 11,000 members and guests. Members of the agricultural youth leadership organization spent the week attending leadership workshops, participating in events and activities, being recognized for their achievements and serving as the legislative body for the Texas FFA Association.
