SMHS students receive state FFA degrees

CROSSVILLE — The Stone Memorial High School FFA Chapter is pleased to announce that Logan Adams, Andy Carey and Nathan Wattenbarger were awarded their State FFA Degree by the Tennessee State FFA Association at the Annual FFA Convention in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

In order to receive the State FFA Degree, FFA members must meet a list of criteria for this degree. They must have received their Chapter FFA Degree, been an active FFA member for at least two years at the time of receiving the State FFA Degree and completed at least two years (360 hours) of systematic school instruction in agricultural education at or above the ninth-grade level, which includes a Supervised Agriculture Experience (SAE) project. Logan’s SAE program is in Agriculture Sales, where he works in his family’s catering business, Southern Kick Barbecue. Nathan is actively involved in his SAE by working with his father in the “green” insulation business, and Andy’s SAE in Diversified Livestock that includes registered Angus cattle, commercial beef cattle, registered and commercial Boer meat goats and Fallow deer.

They also must have earned and productively invested at least $1,000, or have worked at least 300 hours outside of schedule class time through an SAE, demonstrated leadership ability by performing 10 parliamentary law procedures, giving a six-minute speech on a topic relating to agriculture or FFA, and serving as an FFA officer, committee chairperson, or committee member.

Not only does the recipient’s agriculture teacher and the school principal or superintendent have to certify that they have a satisfactory academic record, the FFA member must have participated in the planning and implementation of the chapter’s Program of Activities, participated in at least five different FFA activities above the chapter level and complete at least 25 hours of community service in a minimum of two different activities.

Logan, Andy and Nathan play a vital role in the success of the Stone FFA Chapter. They have worked very hard to achieve this milestone in their FFA careers and are very deserving of this award.
