Knight Receives FFA State Degree, Heads to Nationals

The Toombs County High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) Chapter ended their year with a bang, as Class of 2022 Student Dakota Knight received a state degree at the Georgia FFA State Convention in April.

Dakota Knight has been a member of the Toombs County FFA since middle school and has served multiple officer positions over the years. His Supervised Agricultural Project (SAE) hours and experiences came from working for his dad at their family business, Oconee Welding and Fabrication. Dakota worked over the past four years to gain the hours and experiences to make his project strong with hopes of winning the state title.

Upon traveling to the State Convention, Dakota was named the Central Region State Star in Agribusiness and received several awards for his SAE, qualified for Nationals in his Proficiency Area in Agricultural Mechanics and Design, as well as received an FFA state degree, which is the highest degree awarded at the state level.

“We are very proud of Dakota’s hard work and dedication to our program at Toombs County High School,” FFA Advisor Chasity Denmark commented. “Dakota was a part of the graduating Class of 2022. We wish him the best as he pursues his Welding Diploma at Southeastern Technical College!”

Knight will travel to Indianapolis, Indiana, in October to compete in Agricultural Mechanics and Design at the national level.
