Longview High School students earn highest FFA degree

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) - Six Longview High School students this past summer earned the Lone Star Degree, the highest possible state FFA honor.

FFA members Mitch Randall, Alexandra Furtney, Tyler Romack, Haylie Weeks, Callie Faul and Sierra Jones received their accolades at the state convention in Dallas, according to Daren Duncan, Longview High School FFA advisor.

There are five degrees of active membership in the FFA: Discovery, Greenhand, Chapter, Lone Star (or State) and American. Earning the Lone Star Degree requires that students each earn a minimum of $800 through FFA projects or agriscience job placement and document a minimum of 200 hours of active involvement.

Longview's six FFA students earned almost $22,000 and completed 1800 hours of combined activity, Duncan said.

"These students have all been actively involved for a minimum of 2½ years and have competed in leadership development, judging, livestock shows and completed a minimum of 50 hours of community service," says Duncan. "We have a very dedicated group of young men and women."
