Madison Trivitt earns state’s highest FFA honor
Gainesville FFA chapter president Madison Trivitt was recently awarded the State FFA Degree, the highest degree members can receive at state level. Trivitt is one of 760 degree recipients who received the honor during the State FFA Degree ceremony at the 91st Missouri FFA Convention April 25-26 at the Hearnes Center in Columbia.
Awarding of the degree is based on a member’s supervised agricultural experience program in agribusiness or production agriculture and the member’s leadership ability as demonstrated through involvement in FFA, school and community activities. “The State FFA Degree is the highest recognition a state can award, representing 3 percent of the total Missouri FFA membership per year,” said state FFA adviser Leon Busdieker.
State FFA Degree award charms are sponsored by MFA Inc. based in Columbia.
Madison is the daughter of Bill and Sarah Trivitt of Gainesville.
