Two members of Como-Pickton High School FFA were among 1,700 awarded the prestigious Lone Star FFA Degree earlier this month at the 8th Annual Texas FFA State Convention.

Cole Mitchell and Elijah Williams were among those receiving the degree during the July 8-12 convention in Dallas.

Mitchell and Williams met all requirements for the Lone Star Degree, the highest degree bestowed by the Texas FFA.


The award is presented to FFA members who have received the Chapter degree, been active FFA members for at least two years, completed at least four semesters of agricultural science at or above the ninth grade level, maintained a supervised agricultural experience program, demonstrated their leadership skills and showed a commitment to the FFA through involvement at the chapter level and above.

C-P FFA members were among more than 11,000 members and guests who attended leadership workshops, participated in events and activities, 

The Texas FFA has evolved from an organization focusing primarily on production agriculture, to a broader-based encompassing organization that addresses the needs and interests of students in urban and suburban schools in addition to the rural communities from which FFA rose in 1929. 

The Texas FFA is the nation's largest state FFA association with a membership of more than 95,000 members and 1,000 local FFA chapters.
