Maygen Ward of Houston received the American FFA Degree Saturday at the 81st
National FFA Convention in Indianapolis.
Less than one in 150 FFA members advance through their local chapter and state FFA
degree programs to earn this national degree. Ward, a member of the Houston FFA
chapter under adviser Van Kirkwood, received a gold American FFA Degree key and
certificate in a blue leatherette frame to commemorate her achievement.
Ward is the daughter of Joe and Terisa Ward. She is a sophomore at Missouri S&T at
Rolla and majoring in bio-chemical engineering.
