Three Scottsbluff High School graduates were recognized at the 2019 FFA Convention and Expo, in Indianapolis, Indiana in November. Tyler Aschenbrenner, Payton Flower and Ethan Aschenbrenner were among 4,353 FFA members recognized as American FFA Degree recipients.
The Degree is given to those who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to FFA and have achieved significant accomplishments in their supervised agricultural experiences. The requirements to earn the degree are lengthy and it is awarded to less than one percent of FFA members, making it one of the organization’s most prestigious honors
In addition to their certificates, the recipients received a gold American FFA Degree key.
All three students were involved in the Scotts Bluff County FFA chapter prior to graduating in 2018. Flower now attends school at the University of Nebraska — Lincoln, and the Aschenbrenners are attending the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture in Curtis.
