The 2017 American FFA Degree Recipients have been announced, and two Caldwell County Chapter members were among the 91 chosen in Kentucky.

Margaret Anna Brown and William Cody Clift were chosen from Caldwell County and will be recognized at the 2017 American FFA Degree Ceremony on Saturday, October 28 in Indianapolis during the 8th General Session of the 90th National FFA Convention and Expo.

FFA members who receive the award have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to FFA and made significant accomplishments in their supervised agricultural experiences. Over 4,000 FFA members from all 46 state associations were chosen, meaning that less than 1 percent of FFA members receive the award, making it one of the organizations highest honors. In addition to their degree certificate, each recipient receives a gold American FFA Degree key.

WPKY wants to congratulate Margaret Anna Brown and William Cody Clift on receiving this prestigious award.
