Taylor Casey, daughter of Larry and Anna Long, of Monett, and Mark Mareth, son of Tom and Melinda Mareth, of Monett, received the American FFA Degree.

Both students are members of the Monett FFA Chapter. Earning the degree means they were one of a select group of individuals recognized for years of academic and professional excellence.

The honor was presented on Oct. 22 at the 84th National FFA Convention held in Indianapolis, Ind. Each award recipient received a Gold American FFA Degree key and a certificate in a blue leatherette frame.

Of the 540,379 FFA members nationwide, Casey and Mareth were two of only 3,241 to be recognized in 2011.

Casey is attending Missouri State University where she is majoring in agribusiness with an emphasis on animal science. Mareth is attending Crowder College and majoring in agriculture.
