14 Sheridan County Youth Receive FFA Degrees

Fourteen Sheridan County youth are among more than 180 FFA members who will receive the 2019 Wyoming State FFA Degree next week.

The degree, which will be presented Tuesday during the Wyoming FFA convention in Cheyenne, is the highest award the state can bestow on members of the state organization.

Eight of the Sheridan County recipients are members of the John B. Kendrick chapter at Sheridan High School, two belong to the Tongue River Valley FFA at Tongue River Hgh School in Dayton and four are members of the Clear Creek FFA at Arvada-Clearmont High School.

According to State FFA Advisor Stacy Broda, the state FFA degree is awarded to FFA members who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to FFA and made significant accomplishments in their supervised agriculture experiences. She said less than 10 percent of FFA members earn the degree each year.

The supervised agriculture experience, also known as an SAE, is a hands-on program of work selected by the student when he or she enrolls in agriculture education and FFA. SAEs can include animal production, agribusiness experience or placement in an agriculture business or company.

Sheridan County students who will receive the degrees include:

John B. Kendrick Chapter – Wyatt Ankney, Hunter Benedict, Tristin Clark, Dane Hansen, Cody Hope, Betty Ann Jerney, AdMarie McGuire and Leif Norskog.

Tongue River Valley Chapter – Aaron Jensen and Theron Kalasinsky.

Clear Creek Chapter – Kristin Klaahsen, John Malli, Terissa McClure and Taziree Smith.
