Princeton FFA members to receive Golden State FFA Degrees

The State FFA Degree is bestowed to a select number of FFA members who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to the organization and made significant accomplishments in their supervised agricultural experiences. For Princeton FFA, five members will receive the honor on March 15 at CSU Chico.

“Princeton FFA members Melissa Beebe, Mariza Gutierrez, Claudia Hernandez, Michael Immoos, and Hailey Suhre will be honored with the Golden State Degree this year,” said Kyle Schaad, Princeton FFA Advisor.

According to Schaad, Melissa Beebe is receiving her State Degree through her efforts with a Market Beef Project that she shows and sells each Summer at the Colusa County Fair.

“As FFA members involved in the organization for over two years, the State Degree recipients have accomplished over 500 hours of service towards their agriculture-related projects,” he said.

In addition to their supervised agricultural experience projects, Schaad added that state degree recipients must demonstrate proficiency in parliamentary law; give a speech or lead a group discussion on a topic relating to agriculture or the FFA; serving as an officer, committee chairperson, or participating member of a committee; participate in  distinctly different FFA activities at and above the chapter level; and participate in at least two distinctly different non-FFA school activities outside of normal class time; participate in community improvement activities; and be familiar with the provisions of the constitution of the State Association and National FFA Organization as certified by the local FFA advisor, all while maintaining a 2.0 or higher grade point average.
