Destiny Reed, a junior in the Fairfield Career Center Animal Management program recently earned and was honored with her State FFA Degree, the highest honor a state chapter can bestow upon its members. This year, 956 FFA members earned the Degree. Reed is a student at Teays Valley High School.
“Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, we didn't get to watch her walk across the stage, but Fairfield Career Center is still excited to celebrate Destiny for receiving her State FFA Degree,” said Jennifer Miller, an intervention specialist at Fairfield Career Center and an advisor of the school’s FFA chapter.
“Congratulations to Destiny and Mr. Lucas Helser for representing, leading and accomplishing our school’s first State FFA Degree.”
The FFA serves as the official Career-Technical Student Organization (CTSO) affiliated with the school’s Animal Management program, which is completing its second year at Fairfield Career Center.
The FFA is a national organization dedicated to preparing members for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture. Local, state and national activities and award programs provide opportunities to apply knowledge and skills acquired through agriculture education. The Ohio FFA Association has more than 25,000 members in 312 chapters.
