Michael Moore receives American FFA Degree

FPS staff report

Michael Moore, a 2011 graduate of Carrollton High School, received the American FFA Degree during a ceremony held at the 85th annual National FFA Convention and Expo in October.

The American Degree is the highest degree a member can receive. The degree is awarded based on the member’s supervised agricultural experience (SAE) and FFA participation. To be eligible, FFA members must have earned and productively invested $7,500 through a SAE program in which they start, own or hold a professional position in an existing agriculture enterprise. Recipients must also complete 50 community serve hours as well as demonstrate outstanding leadership abilities and community involvement. Moore’s SAE included goats, rabbits and work on the home farm. Each recipient received a gold American FFA Degree Key plus a certificate during the ceremony.

Moore is the son of Larry and Jeanne Moore of Steubenville Rd., Carrollton and is a sophomore at The Ohio State University.

Several Carrollton FFA members attended the convention, held in Indianapolis, IN. Throughout the week, they attended several sessions, visited Carly Elk Farm and explored the national convention career show. The group also enjoyed a hypnotist show and the bulls and broncos rodeo.
