Kade Gambill of the Sandoval FFA Chapter, was named a recipient for the American FFA Degree at the 90th annual National FFA Convention held This week in Indianapolis. The American FFA Degree is the highest degree bestowed by the National FFA Organization. Mr. Gambill is the first Sandoval FFA member to ever receive this prestigious award!

The American Degree is the top degree in a four-tier degree program that recognizes individual achievement in instructional programs, supervised experience and leadership development-0
A portion of the American FFA Degree ceremony states, “Boundaries within our country exist only in name.  True American citizens are interested in and loyal to their local communities and states, but their greatest devotion is to their country.  Recipients of the American FFA Degree see beyond limited horizons.  They concern themselves not only with the affairs of their local chapters and state associations, but also with the National FFA Organization, working for the advancement of agriculture, which, in turn, strengthens America.”

FFA gives students the opportunity to apply practical classroom knowledge to real world experiences through local, state and national competitions.
