Last month Trey Yarger was among the elite FFA members to earn his State FFA Degree. The Penta Career Center FFA member will be a senior this fall with a focus on Landscaping and Turf Management.
This is the highest degree the state of Ohio can award a FFA member. It recognizes outstanding Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) projects, FFA achievements and activities, school and community activities, with less than two percent of members earning the honor.
Yarger's SAE projects included his own lawn care company, "Trey's Lawn Care" that he has owned and operated since age 10. This year he has expanded his business to include landscape installation.
He was a member of the state's sixth place team in the Turf Bowl coordinated by the Ohio Turfgrass Foundation.
This spring he helped design the front landscape bed and presented the design proposal to the Penta Board of Education.
He was the Penta FFA reporter for the past year. He is a 12-year member of the Golden Key 4-H Club, currently serving as president.
He will be the Penta FFA's king candidate at this year's Wood County Fair. He will enter Penta's Transition to Work program this fall. He is also employed with Schick Electric and plans to continue to expand his lawn care business.
His home school is Bowling Green High School, where he is involved with football and track.
