Seventeen Dayton FFA members and four Agricultural Science teachers traveled to Fort Worth, July 15-19 to attend the 81st annual Texas FFA State Convention.

These student attended sessions over leadership, teamwork and the endless opportunities that the FFA has to offer them.

On Wednesday evening four of the FFA members received the highest form of membership that the Texas FFA can offer, the Lone Star Degree. Only 3 percent of the FFA members in the state of Texas earn this degree.  

Earning the Lone Star Degree were Dalton Patterson, John Griffin, Skyler Wagner and Hallee Cognata.

Also, the Texas FFA Association embraces the idea of building stronger communities. The last line of the FFA motto, “Living to Serve,” signifies the vital role service plays in our organization.

This week Dayton FFA gathered and donated an assortment of art supplies that will be donated to Cook Children’s Hospital.
