Former Floresville High School students Georgia Dunn, Ashlyn Talley, and Hannah Sawers earned their American FFA Degree during the National FFA Convention held Nov. 2 in Louisville, Ky. The American FFA Degree is the highest degree a member can earn. All three ladies have been members of the Floresville FFA since 2007.

Georgia is the daughter of James and Betty Freasier of Floresville. As a member of the Floresville FFA, Georgia participated on several FFA teams, including teams that were state qualifiers in livestock judging and public relations. Georgia has raised cattle for exhibition since she was in the third grade and continues to help her mother, Betty, raise registered Simbrah cattle at Freasier Ranch. Georgia is currently a student at Texas A&M University-Kingsville pursuing a degree in agricultural education.

The daughter of Jason and Michelle Talley of Floresville, Ashlyn was a member of the fifth-place state public relations team in 2011. She also participated in horse judging. Ashlyn raised show pigs while in school and is currently raising cattle with her father. Currently an animal science student at Texas A&M University in College Station, Ashlyn hopes to be a veterinarian one day.

The daughter of Chuck and Cindy Sawers of Floresville, Hannah was a member of state qualifying teams in livestock judging and public relations. Hannah also showed pigs and cattle while in high school and she continues to raise cattle with her father. Currently a student at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, Hannah is pursuing a degree in wildlife and recreation management.

The American FFA Degree is awarded to FFA members who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to FFA and made significant accomplishments in their supervised agricultural experiences. In addition, individuals had to complete a stringent list of requirements. Approximately 3,500 American FFA Degrees are handed out each year at the National FFA Convention & Expo. That number represents less than half of 1 percent of all FFA members, making it one of the organization’s highest honors. Earning the American FFA Degree is a very prestigious honor.

Floresville FFA and Floresville High School would like to congratulate these three young ladies on their accomplishment.

For more information about the FFA, contact the Floresville High School Ag Department at 830-393-5370.
