There was a heightened level of excitement at this year’s National FFA Convention with the Garth Brooks concert and visit by President Trump. Then add top awards to the mix and you have one great convention!
Six local students garnered the top award, the American FFA Degree, at this year’s National FFA Convention.
Students earning the American FFA Degree are: Jenna Baker, Somonauk-Leland-Sandwich chapter; Olivia Willrett, DeKalb; Zack Witek, Indian Creek; and Fred DeWitt, Teagan Neff, and Jennifer Stevens, all of the Sycamore chapter.
These students were awarded the top honor at the National FFA Convention held in Indianapolis, Ind. in October.
