Kaylee Peace of the Shawnee FFA chapter has met requirements to receive an Agricultural Education Career Passport.
Recipients will receive a plaque and be recognized on stage April 30 during the 93rd State FFA Convention held at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City.
The sponsor of the Agricultural Education Career Passports is CEV Multimedia and Enel Green Power North America. The career passport is awarded to students who have prepared to enter the agricultural workforce through rigorous curricular and evaluation activities established by industry. These graduating high school seniors must complete coursework in their chosen field and successfully pass objective and skill-based competency tests. The career passport assures a prospective employer its holder is well prepared to enter a job in a specific field.
