Each year, the National FFA Organization honors FFA members who show the utmost dedication to the organization through their desire to develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. The American FFA Degree is bestowed up on a select group of students in recognition of their years of academic and professional experience. We had three members earn the American degree this year and two of them traveled to Indianapolis to receive the degree at the National FFA Convention, which was from October 23rd, 2018 to October 27th, 2018. These Falls City FFA Chapter members earning the American Degree were: Erik Eickhoff, Brooke Lotter, and Megan Eickhoff. This award recognizes demonstrated ability and outstanding achievements in agricultural business, production, processing or service programs. To be eligible, FFA members must have an earned and productive supervised agricultural experience program in which they start, own or hold a professional position in an existing agriculture enterprise. Recipients must also complete 50 hours community service and demonstrate outstanding leadership abilities and civic involvement. Another one of the main requirements is that the applicant must have at least, $10,000 earned and $7,500 invested or they can have earned and invested at least $2,000 and worked 2,250 unpaid hours. Congratulations to all of these individuals and their parents.
