Meyer receives American FFA degree at convention

Elizabeth Meyer of the Marion-Florence FFA Chap­ter received her American FFA Degree Oct. 28 at the National FFA Convention.

The American FFA Degree is awarded to members who have achieved a high level of success in their supervised agriculture experience and exemplify a high-commitment level to FFA.

It is the highest degree an FFA member can earn, and less than one-half of 1 percent of FFA members achieve it. In fact, only seven members of the Marion-Florence FFA Chapter have received it.

In order to receive the American FFA Degree, a member must have already received the state FFA degree, completed at least three years of agriculture education; completed one year of education beyond high school, earned and productively invested $10,000 in a supervised agriculture experience program, maintained at least a “C” average in high school classes, and participated in a minimum of 50 hours of community service within at least three different groups or activities
