Food is a very important part of our lives, that is why it is a good thing to hear that there is an Alumnus from Ashland High School who is an FFA scholar. Henry B. (class of 2018)  won the American FFA degree from the National FFA Association, which less than one percent of all members receive.

The American FFA degree is not easy to win; it takes a lot of hard work and dedication, along with meeting the criteria for it. To get this award Henry had to do many supervised agricultural experiences, such as fair projects, market rabbits and chickens. 

Along with doing supervised agricultural experiences, he had to be an active member of the FFA for all four years of high school and three years outside of high school.

Henry was presented the award during the 93rd National FFA Convention(on October 27-29th), which was held virtually.

 After getting this award he said “I would attribute diligence, hard work, and perseverance to receiving this award, because with hard work and perseverance anything can be achieved.” According to Henry if others want to achieve this award they can through hard work and perseverance.
