Each year, the national FFA organization honors FFA members who show their dedication to the organization through their desire to develop their potential for leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.

The American FFA Degree is bestowed upon a select group of students in recognition of their years of academic and professional excellence. This year, 3,780 degrees were awarded.

Danielle Timm, a member of the Gillett FFA chapter, was among the degree recipients at the 89th National FFA Convention & Expo on Oct. 22 in Indianapolis.

The award recognizes demonstrated ability and outstanding achievements in agricultural business, production, processing or service programs.

To be eligible, FFA members must have earned and productively invested $10,000 through a supervised agricultural experience program in which they start, own or hold a professional position in an existing agricultural enterprise. Timm’s supervised agricultural experiences were equine production and beef production placement.

Recipients must also complete 50 hours of community service and demonstrate outstanding leadership abilities and civic involvement.

Each recipient of the American FFA Degree receives a gold American FFA Degree key, certificate and matted frame after being recognized on stage at the national convention.
