Sixteen Earn Organizations Highest Award

Sixteen West Central FFA members will be awarded the American FFA Degree during the 89th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, IN in October.  Earning the degree means they are among a select group of individuals to be recognized for years of academic and professional excellence!
The American FFA Degree is the highest award that can be bestowed upon an FFA member.  Roughly 3,500 of the current 629,367 members will be awarded the degree during the National FFA Convention.  This represents one half of one percent of all members.  The American FFA Degree recognizes demonstrated leadership ability and outstanding achievements in agricultural business, production, processing or service programs.  To be eligible, members must have earned and productively invested $7,500 through a Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) program in which they start, own, or hold a professional position in an existing agricultural enterprise.  Recipients must also make it their mission to demonstrate outstanding leadership abilities and community involvement.  West Central FFA members earning the American FFA Degree include Jake Anderson, Taylor Bergeson, Jared Blume, Tayt Boeckholt, Lauren Dolly, Cody Farmer, Kylie Hanisch, Ashlynn Henning, Dean Knuth, Layne Krier, Noah Larson, Josh Mettler, Liz Renner, Rachel Schartz, Sara Waldner, and Amber Weber.  
The American FFA Degree Recognition program is sponsored by ADM, Case IH, Elanco, Farm Credit Services, and Syngenta.  The West Central FFA is advised by Linda Petersen.
