The National FFA American Star awards recipients represent the best of the best among thousands of American FFA Degree recipients. Finalists for the award have mastered skills in production, finance, management and/or research. For the first time in our 87 year history, the Texas FFA Association was represented by a finalist in all four categories. 

In the Star American Farmer category, Thomas Glascock of the Pilot Point FFA chapter competed with his beef production SAE. Glascock is no stranger to this family tradition, as his sister Rachel was also a national star finalists in the same category. Also a sibling legacy, Dakota Crissman of the Bells FFA chapter led the way with his American Star in Agribusiness; his brother Austin was also a finalist in 2012. In the American Star in Agriscience category, Rory Tucker of Klein FFA represented the lone star state. Finally, Britt Larson also of the Pilot Point FFA chapter rounded out this historic slate of star finalists with his American Star in Agricultural Placement category. 

The duo of finalist from Pilot Point FFA represent another historic moment as Mrs. Tammy Glascock, Mr. Randy Glascock and Ms. Casey Brinlee as they became the first advisors in Texas FFA, and recent National FFA history to have two American Star Finalists in the same year.
