The Annual Royal FFA Appreciation & Awards Banquet was held on Thursday May 3 rd , 2018. This
year’s banquet turned out to be an exciting evening for the students of the Royal FFA Chapter. Many dynamic awards were presented to our fellow FFA members along with numerous different local FFA
degrees. Also, the people in the community that helped make this year possible were acknowledged.
Awards were presented to helpful volunteers and community supporters throughout the year and show season. The “Top 5” supporters and buyers at the livestock auction in April were also recognized along with the Honorary Distinguished Service award recipients. The 5th place auction buyer at the 62nd Anniversary Livestock Show and Sale was HDH Instruments, 4th was Greenyard Landscaping, 3rd was Tonkawa Farms, 2 nd was the Friends of the FFA and in 1st was the 9-GBuyers Group. Our Distinguished Service Award Recipients were Courtney Williams, Jose Ibarra, Liz Hyde, Eckerman’s Meat Market, Scott Hobbs with Tri-County Feed, John Baxley, Wesley and Mary Davis, and Whitney Austin. 

Thank you for the support at our annual show and sale.  Chapter members were awarded their FFA degrees that acknowledge those active FFA members in leadership skills, career development and SAE’s. The degrees awarded at the chapter level are the Discovery FFA Degree, the Greenhand FFA Degree, and the Chapter FFA Degree. This summer at the State FFA Convention in Fort Worth, 7 of the local members will be receiving their State FFA Degree or Lonestar Degree. We are proud to announce that this year we were able to reward 19 Discovery Degrees, 29 Greenhand Degrees, and 21 Chapter FFA Degrees. We also award a “Star Award” to the member from each degree candidate list who excelled throughout the year. The 7 th grade Star Discovery Award went to Litzie Gonzalez, and the 8 th grade Star Discovery Award went to Alondra Melendez. The Star Greenhand Award went to Hayden Standley, the Star Chapter Award went to LeAnn Hillsman, and the Star Lonestar Award went to Rilee Hall. All of our seniors have the chance to win the Dekalb Award and this year it was awarded to Taylor Nelson.

In addition, the upcoming 2018-2019 Royal FFA Officer Team was established at the banquet.
The officers are chosen based on an application analysis and personal interview. These individuals have committed themselves to uphold high standards as role models and show their leadership skills. Special thank you to all of the community support that attended this year’s banquet.
