Cates receive grant from National FFA Foundation


HOUSTON – A $1,000 grant from Rabo AgriFinance has been awarded to Houston FFA member Dillion Cates by the National FFA Foundation.
The grant is designed to help FFA members create and enhance their supervised agricultural experience (SAE), 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 careeer development experience.
Cates is a junior at Houston High School and a member of the Houston FFA Chapter and was selected from over 600 applicants nationwide. His supervised agricultural experience is mowing and fertilizing lawns and pastures.
The National FFA Foundation is the fundraising arm of the National FFA Organization, which provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 579,678 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of the 7,570 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
