Cy Falls FFA receives Golden Horizon award
September 30, 2009 — The Cypress Falls High School FFA was named a gold-level chapter for the esteemed Golden Horizon award in the single-teacher division at the 81st annual Texas FFA Convention held this summer in Dallas.
The gold-level Golden Horizon award is the highest state rating to be bestowed upon a Texas FFA chapter. Golden Horizon award selection is based on exceptional chapter involvement and activities within the school and community.
The award recognizes a well-rounded chapter with an exceptional Program of Activities (POA) that promotes maximum participation, in order to deliver the leadership component of agricultural education.
The Texas FFA has evolved from an organization focusing primarily on production agriculture, to a broader-based encompassing organization that addresses the needs and interests of students in urban and suburban schools in addition to the rural communities from which FFA rose in 1929. The Texas FFA is one of the nation’s largest state FFA associations with a membership of more than 63,000 and 1,000 local FFA chapters.
