Devine FFA would like to congratulate eight outstanding FFA members who have applied for their State Lone Star Degree. The Texas Lone Star Degree is the highest degree of membership the State FFA Association can award.
These eight deserving Devine FFA members have met all the following requirements to apply for their degrees including; receiving their chapter degrees, actively be an FFA member for at least two years, have completed at least 2 years (360 hours) of systematic school instruction in agricultural education, have earned and productively invested at least $1,000, demonstrated leadership ability by giving a six-minute speech on an agriculture topic or serving as an FFA officer, committee chairperson, or committee member.
They must also have completed ten activities above the chapter level in at least three of six different categories: leadership development events, career development events, conventions and meetings, project shows, student awards and leadership and service. And most importantly, complete at least 25 hours of community service.
These active FFA members had a total of $48,000 in project assets and $27,000 in profit income, combined. Their hard work and dedication earned over 300 active hours in the FFA program.
We are excited to have them represent Devine High School and the Devine FFA at the state convention in July. Congratulations!
