Detroit High School graduates Dusty Brown and Jacie Jenkins recently earned the Texas Future Farmers of America Lone Star Degree. Brown and Jenkins earned what Detroit FFA said is “the highest degree of membership the State FFA Association can award” through their high school accomplishments in the student-led organization.
The organization said, “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. This degree of active membership is awarded at the state level during the Texas FFA Convention.”
“Congratulations to Dusty Brown and Jacie Jenkins,” said Detroit FFA.
