Wednesday, August 20, 2014 • Posted August 20, 2014

Several members of the Blanco FFA Chapter recently attended the annual State FFA Convention in Ft. Worth where they were recognized on stage for their accomplishments. In all, more than 10,000 FFA members from across the state attended this year’s convention.

Among the first to be recognized on stage was Brenna Wallace as she was an area winner and state finalist for the Star Greenhand Award which recognizes the most outstanding first year FFA members.

In addition, Kari Graham, Dylan Bates and Logan Dodd were awarded their State FFA Degrees. This is the highest individual honor that an FFA member can achieve based on their involvement in the FFA.

Finally, as a result of their hard work and achievements over the past four years, Rance Dollahite, Alley Penshorn and Kristen Bowman were each awarded an $18,000 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Scholarship as well as a $1,000 San Antonio Livestock Exposition Tour Guide Scholarship. The Houston scholarship also comes with an additional $16,000 which they can apply for following their second year of college.

Other Blanco FFA members attending the convention as voting delegates included Payton Savarino, Garrett Seales and Phil Alvarado in addition to FFA Advisors Felice and Jason Marek.
