Freasier earns 2013 Lone Star Farmer degree
Stockdale FFA advisor Joshua Heimann congratulates Shannon Freasier upon receiving the highest honor of the state FFA, the Lone Star Farmer degree.
DALLAS -- Five members of the Stockdale FFA, along with their advisor, attended the 85th annual Texas FFA Convention July 9-12 in Dallas. Before the event was over, one student placed fifth in public speaking and another received a state FFA degree.
Jessica Puente advanced to the finals in the Senior Prepared Public Speaking event, placing fifth in state.
Shannon Freasier received the highest degree of membership in the state FFA association -- the Lone Star Farmer. This is the highest award a student is able to receive at the state level.
Others attending the FFA convention were Matthew Hartman, Darby Jones, Jessica Steven, and FFA advisor Joshua Heimann.
“All of these students learned how to be leaders and improve their chapter,” Heimann said.
While in Dallas, the group took in a Texas Rangers baseball game and visited the TV reality show “Gas Monkey.”
