Klayton Hoff and Cassie Pickett, of the Henrietta FFA chapter, were awarded the Lone Star FFA Degree at the 85th annual Texas FFA State Convention held July 8-12 in Dallas. The Lone Star FFA Degree is the highest degree bestowed by the Texas FFA.
The Lone Star FFA Degree recognizes FFA members who have received the Chapter degree, been active FFA members for at least two years, complete at least four semesters of agricultural science at or above the ninth grade level, maintain a Supervised Agricultural Experience program, demonstrate their leadership skills and show a commitment to the FFA through involvement at the chapter level and above. Hoff and Pickett were two of more than 1,700 FFA members to receive this esteemed degree this year.
Since 1935, the Henrietta FFA has been a meaningful part of the Texas FFA, which is the nation’s largest state FFA association with a membership of more than 95,000 members and 1,000 local FFA chapters. FFA gives students the opportunity to apply practical classroom knowledge to real world experiences through local, state and national competitions.
