Central High School Students Awarded American FFA Degrees

Five Central High School FFA students earned their American FFA Degree at the 91st National FFA Convention and Expo in Indianapolis, Indiana. The week was highlighted by Mitchell Anderson, William Drumm, Caleb Hogan, Hunter Walker, and Jacob Wilbanks being awarded the American FFA Degree during the Eighth General Session of the 91st National FFA Convention and Expo.

 American FFA Degree recipients show promise for the future and have gone above and beyond to achieve excellence. To be awarded the highest degree of honor an active FFA member can receive, students spend years developing their Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) program investing over 2,250 hours and earning $2,000 with their SAE in excess of scheduled class time.

Recipients receive a certificate and the American FFA Degree key in honor of their accomplishments and dedication to the organization. Recipients are commended for their outstanding leadership abilities and community involvement. The Agriculture Instructors and FFA Advisors at Central High School are Ms. Laura Williford and Mrs. Nikhol Dysart. In addition, former Agriculture Instructors Mr. Chuck Joiner and Mr. Mark Lashley were influential in the success of these students.

More than 67,000 FFA members, advisors, and guests representing all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, attended the convention. This year’s theme was “Just One” encouraging students to take advantage of every moment; taking just one step, just one conversation, just one action, to make an impact. Members were honored with a keynote address from President Donald Trump and concert by Garth Brooks.
