Four $1,000 National FFA SAE grants have been awarded to Emmi Garrison, Garrett Hoff, Alexa Rohe, and Preston Ross by Farm Credit, Invenergy, Domino’s, and Boot Barn.
SAE grants are designed to help FFA members create or expand Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) projects, a requirement that all FFA members must complete. An SAE requires FFA members to create and operate an agriculture related business, work at an agriculture-related business, or conduct an agricultural research experience. Upon completion, FFA members must submit a comprehensive report regarding their career development experience.
This year 29 different sponsors funded SAE Grants. A full list of sponsors can be found on the National FFA Organization website on the SAE Grants webpage.
Garrison, Hoff, Rohe, and Ross are members of the Aledo FFA Chapter. Their applications were selected from among 1,258 applications nationwide. Only 7 SAE grants were awarded to Texas FFA members, four of those being Aledo FFA members.
