Christy Capps Receives National Honorary American FFA Degree

The Honorary American FFA Degree is given to those who advance agricultural education and FFA through outstanding personal commitment. This honorary degree is an opportunity to recognize those who have gone beyond valuable daily contributions to make an extraordinary long-term difference in the lives of students, inspiring confidence in a new generation of agriculturists.

Mrs. Capps grew up in Houston as an urban ag girl who raised sheep and rabbits. Mrs. Capps stated, “This is a lifelong dream to have achieved this award. This is the ultimate. The highest I can go.”

She is a first generation to go to college and graduate from Sam Houston State University. She is an active member of the Vocational Agriculture Teachers Association and has been teaching for 14 years.

Members of the National FFA Organization’s board of directors approved the nomination. Mrs. Capps received a certificate and medal, and her name will be permanently recorded.

The National FFA Organization continues to grow and make a difference in the lives of more than 610,204 members. Of all the FFA members, only one-tenth of one percent will receive this award.
