Four Earn American FFA Degree at National Convention

At this year’s National FFA Convention, four FFA students from DeKalb County chapters earned their American FFA Degree.

They are: Jacob Meyer, Somonauk-Leland-Sandwich; Mindy Smits, Sycamore; Dayton Ward, Sycamore; and Sawyer Willrett, DeKalb.

The American FFA Degree is the highest degree achievable in the FFA organization. The degree is based on an SAE (Supervised Ag Experience) project and outstanding leadership abilities and community involvement exhibited through their FFA career. Less than half of one percent of all FFA members earns the organization’s highest honor.

The American FFA Degree was presented Oct. 30 at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, IN.
