Congratulations to Joey Robinson who was recognized with the State FFA Degree, the highest degree the State association can bestow. The member must have taken two years of agricultural education and been an active member for two years. The member must have invested $2500 or worked 1500 hours in their SAE area and have completed their State FFA Degree application and have been accepted at the State level. Great job!
Congratulations to Joey Robinson on placing 3rd in the Wisconsin Star Farmer contest and 5th in the Wisconsin Star Agricultural Placement contest! The Star Farmer and Star Agricultural Placement are the highest honor the Wisconsin State FFA Association can bestow on its members based on their Supervised Agricultural Experience. The process to become a finalist involves a long application, a set of interviews, and many hours of SAE work. Way to go, Joey!
Ella James was the delegate for Mineral Point FFA at the State FFA convention last week. She was involved in electing our new Section Four State FFA officer. Thanks, Ella!
