The College recently had six students earn the American Future Farmers of America (FFA) Degree, the highest degree achievable in the National FFA Organization. The presentations were made this fall during the 94th National FFA Convention and Expo, in Indianapolis, Ind.

According to the National FFA Organization’s web site, “the American FFA Degree demonstrates the effort members apply toward their supervised agricultural experience and the outstanding leadership abilities and community involvement they exhibited throughout their FFA career. Recipients show promise for the future and have gone above and beyond to achieve excellence.”
