Senior FFA member earns state degree
The Oregon State FFA celebrated its 93rd FFA Convention virtually this year March 16-18. This is something the Madras FFA Chapter looks forward to attending each spring.
For some members who come, all they receive from sessions is a message given from keynote speakers, but others who set and achieve their goals will be rewarded. There are many different types of events to participate in and countless opportunities to be recognized for hard work and dedication to the organization such as FFA Talents, Proficiency areas, growth and so forth.
However, more specifically, it is what many Oregon members strive for their entire FFA career: the FFA State Degree, which is the highest honor awarded by each state at individual state FFA conventions.
At Madras, that dream became reality for one Senior FFA member at the conclusion of the 2021 Convention, Natalia Olivares. She came as a chapter degree holder and left as state degree holder.
Madras FFA would like to not only congratulate our senior state degree recipient but all 357 Oregon FFA members who received this honor. Congratulations to each of you!
