Richland FFA Seniors Receive Star Awards
To be recognized as an Area FFA Star is one of the highest awards that an FFA student can achieve at the Area level. Only through hard work, persistence, and dedication will this be accomplished. Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAEs) are the students’ year round projects or enterprises where they apply agriculture skills and knowledge learned from the classroom. These can range from working for local agriculture businesses, owning their own livestock, running their own small agriculture business, or taking part in agriculture scientific research. These SAE’s are separated into four categories; Agribusiness, Agriscience, Placement, and Ownership. Throughout the 21 schools that make up the Missouri FFA: Area 13, more than 35 highly qualified students sent in applications, hoping to be recognized as the Area Star in one of those four categories. Richland seniors Jacob Black, Katie Ledbetter, and Devyn Poynter were 3 of those applicants. After evaluating their applications and completing an extensive interview process, Richland FFA seniors rose to the top and were named Area Stars. Jacob Black was named Area 13 Star Farmer, Katie Ledbetter was named Area 13 Star in Placement, and Devyn Poynter was named Area 13 Star in Agribusiness. Not only was Katie named Star in Placement she also took first place in her proficiency area; Diversified Crop Production-Placement. All of these honors will qualify these students to interview at the state level at this years FFA State Convention, in hopes of being named State Stars.
