Solid gold: Recipients of American FFA Degree
The American FFA Degree is the highest honor available to members and is signified by the awarded gold key, identifying the member as having a dedication to excellence, their state chapter, and the national organization.
Recipients have achieved the state degree, completed 360 hours of agriculture education and have graduated from high school no less than 12 months prior to the national convention. They have proven the quality of their Supervised Agriculture Experience (SAE) through record keeping and substantiated earnings from that SAE. The students’ leadership records, academic achievements, and community service are also taken into consideration and should be indicative of their commitment to excellence.
The National FFA Convention was hosted virtually to members all across the country and the American Degree recipients were recognized Wednesday evening during the session both online and broadcast on RFD-TV.

I have been rather preoccupied lately and haven’t been writing my editor’s note. So, for those who have called and emailed to make sure I’m still on this Earth, I’m still here.
