Marble Falls FFA was represented for the first time in 16 years at the State Greenhand Creed Speaking Event by Kenadee Stewart, Friday and Saturday, December 2nd and 3rd. Upon arriving at Sam Houston State University Friday, Stewart was one of only twenty State competitors from a pool of 750 Greenhand Creed Speakers that started the competition from 57 Districts around Texas. Each District advanced two winners to the Area competition and each Area competition advanced two competitors to the State contest. Texas is divided into 10 areas, so just making it to State is a huge accomplishment. Stewart, a freshman at Marble Falls High School, competed in the Semi-finals Friday and was one of five that qualified from her heat to the Finals Saturday. Stewart brought home a 6th place State finish to Marble Falls.
“Mr. (Mike) Rempe and I were so excited to have Kenadee represent Marble Falls in the State Competition in Huntsville last weekend,” said FFA Co-Sponsor, Dawn Stratton. “Kenadee is a Freshman, and it’s a huge accomplishment for her to compete at the State level so early in her FFA career.”
The Texas FFA is the nation’s largest state FFA association, with a membership of more than 117,000 active FFA members. FFA programs teach skills in leadership, career development and personal growth. FFA gives students the opportunity to practically apply classroom knowledge to real-world experiences through local, state and national competitions.
Sam Houston State University has partnered with Texas FFA in hosting these competitions for more than 80 years.
