National FFA Board Announces Five Local Students To Receive American FFA Degrees

August 10, 2017

The National FFA Board of Directors announced Wednesday that five local students will receive the coveted American FFA Degree.

They are: Kaitlyn Kleinatland, Bethany Reynolds, Haylee Weaver and Courtney Weekley, Northview High School graduates; and Miranda Vidak, West Florida High graduate. The degree is presented after the FFA member graduates from high school.

The American FFA Degree is the highest honor bestowed upon any regular member of the National FFA Organization. The degree is presented to FFA members who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to FFA and made significant accomplishments in their supervised agricultural experiences.

The American FFA Degree is awarded at the National FFA Convention & Expo each year to less than one percent of FFA members. Requirements to earn the honor are lengthy. In addition to their degree certificate, each recipient receives a gold American FFA Degree key.

The American FFA degrees will be presented to the students in October at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, IN.

    So very proud of you all! Three of you were my first grade students; nothing is more gratifying than to see the ladies you’ve grown to be!

    Congratulations to all the girls. American farm productivity has almost doubled since the 1970s when the world was faced with yearly famines and millions died of starvation. The American farmer and their dedication to teaching best practices through young people are more than just what is happening in our backyard, it impacts the world. Keep learning and fighting the good battle. Improved productivity means lives are being saved.
