RVHS FFA State Convention

MANHATTAN, Kansas — Royal Valley FFA member Karlie Albright was recognized as the State Star in Agribusiness, one of the association’s top honors, during the 94th Kansas FFA Convention, June 1–3, 2022, on the Kansas State University campus.  

Each year, the Kansas FFA Association recognizes three FFA members who have the top Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) programs with the Star Farmer, Star in Agribusiness and Star in Ag Placement awards. The Star competitions are sponsored by Farm Credit Associations of Kansas, United Bank and Trust and Kansas Farm Bureau.  

Albright’s SAE is in Diversified Agricultural Production. Her SAE includes growing a vegetable garden, working on her family's cattle and crop farm, having her own small cattle herd and growing market beef and swine each summer. She managed all basic needs of the garden like planting seeds, watering and weeding. When it was time to harvest the produce she would collect and sell it at the produce stand that she set up in the Dollar General parking lot. She got involved in the other parts of her SAE by growing up on a farm involved with crop and cattle production. Albright also raises one market pig per summer for the local county fair. After graduation, Albright plans to attend K-State and major in agricultural education.  

Karlie is the daughter of Scott and Barbara Albright. Her chapter advisor is Kim Clark.
