FARMERS GROUP GRANTS HONOR TO TWO TEENS.

Byline: Daily News

LANCASTER - Two Lancaster teens received the highest degree given by the Future Farmers of America at the 78th National Future Farmers of America Convention in Louisville, Ky.

Sarah Denise Bromiley and Lindsay Marie Castillo, both members of the Lancaster FFA at Antelope Valley High School, received the American FFA Degree for their demonstration of leadership ability and achievements in agricultural business, production, processing or service.

Of the nearly half-million FFA members, only 2,900, or about half of one percent, are so recognized.

To be eligible for the degree, members must have earned and productively invested $7,500 through a supervised agricultural experience in which they start, own or hold a professional position in an existing agricultural enterprise, as well as demonstrating outstanding leadership and community involvement.

Bromiley, daughter of Wayne and Debra Bromiley of Mojave and Deborah Bromiley of Lancaster, raised steer, pigs and lambs as well as working at Akal Animal Hospital.

Castillo, daughter of Jose and Diana Castillo of Lancaster, raised steer, pigs, lambs and rabbits.

Both credited their FFA adviser, Cindy Nelson, an agricultural teacher at Antelope Valley High School, in helping them attain their degrees.

``We couldn't have done it without the help and input that Mrs. Nelson gave us,'' said Castillo.

``Mrs. Nelson came to AVHS and encouraged students to strive and take chances in life,'' added Bromiley. ``She never gave up on us even when times got tough. She always stuck in and kept pushing us until we had accomplished our goal.''
