NP FFA adviser Kate Skirvin nominated for Honorary American FFA Degree

Monday, July 20, 2020

ROACHDALE -- Marking another distinction for the successful FFA program at North Putnam, adviser and agriscience teacher Kate Skirvin has been nominated to receive the organization’s Honorary American Degree.

The award recognizes individuals who have “provided exceptional service on a national level to agriculture, agricultural education or FFA.” Teachers who have developed “high-quality agricultural education programs which inspire and motivate their students” are also eligible for the award.

Nominations for the Honorary American Degree are first sent to state FFA associations for approval. Each chartered association may have a maximum of only five recipients each year. Recipients are announced annually during the National FFA Convention and Expo.

This year’s event in Indianapolis was recently canceled due to concerns with COVID-19. However, national organizers are planning a virtual convention to be held in October.
