Youth in Agricultural Education Excels In Supervised Agricultural Experiences

Pershing Auditorium was filled with FFA members, advisors, families and supporters. 

On April 3, 2009, 411 FFA members filled the stage to receive their State FFA Degree. This degree signifies many things for the youth of today. It means they have developed leadership skills, kept accurate records of their Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE), and have been involved with local, state and national activities.


State degree awards were given to (l-r): Tyler Reestman, Linsey Bode, Nathan Niewohner and Carlie Redding.
