It is presented to FFA Members within the Commonwealth who have shown outstanding achievement within FFA. To earn the prestigious degree, FFA members had to complete a Supervised Agricultural Experience Project, which included earning and investing at least $1,000 into their project. In addition, they needed to work a minimum of 300 hours outside of class, participate in at least five activities above the chapter level, and complete twenty-five hours of community service.

FFA is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. Mark Anderson, agricultural science teacher at the high school, is the club advisor.
