25 students receive American FFA Degree

Nov. 5, 2015

At the 2015 National FFA Convention held in Louisville, Kentucky, 25 students from the Department of Agricultural Communication, Education, and Leadership received their American FFA Degree.

The American FFA Degree is awarded to members who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to FFA and made significant accomplishments in their supervised agricultural experiences (SAEs). Approximately 3,500 American FFA Degrees are handed out each year at the National FFA Convention. That number represents less than half of one percent of all FFA members, making it one of the organizations highest honors. In addition to their degree, each recipient receives a gold American FFA Degree key.
