Congratulations to Steven Dunkle.
  He will receive the State FFA Degree on April 25 at the State FFA Convention in Columbia.  A little background for those not familiar with FFA:  You may wonder why a student that graduated last year is just now receiving his State Degree.  In the FFA, students are eligible to receive the degree up to two years after graduation.  In Steven's case, because his SAE (Supervised Agricultural Education) project was placement (Save-A-Lot) he has to work a bunch of hours and earn a bunch of money to equal a student that has an ownership project.   Last year Steven had more than enough Leadership points, but was lacking in SAE points.  To make a comparison as to how important the State Degree is, the is equivalent to making All State in a sport.
