FFA Lone Star Degrees

Three members of the Granbury FFA earned Lone Star Degrees at the state convention held July 11-15, 2011, in Lubbock.


Receiving the prestigious state recognition were Ashlyn Hill, Cyndi Jackson, and Courtney Overstreet.  All three are entering their senior year at Granbury High School.


The Lone Star Degree is the highest degree of membership that the Texas FFA can award.  FFA members may apply to receive the Lone Star Degree only after they have received the chapter degree. Those wishing to receive their Lone Star Degree must have been an active FFA member 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 (SAE) program, invest significant time and money in their SAE, demonstrate their leadership skills, and show a commitment to the FFA through involvement at the chapter level and above.
