Attached is the list 52 Georgia FFA members who have been approved to earn the American FFA Degree at the 86th National FFA Convention in October. It is a tremendous honor for these students to reach this level of success with their Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) program. Just as the students who did this work deserve a lot of credit for their achievement, so do their agricultural education teachers and FFA advisors. To each ag teacher who has students on this list, I say THANK YOU for encouraging, supervising and teaching these young people. You are changing lives.

Please see the note below from National FFA about the American Degree recognition. Each American Degree recipient (and their advisor) will receive an email with specific directions on registering that student for Convention, requesting their American Degree reception tickets, and housing information for those who only plan to attend on Saturday for the ceremony.

Also, please double check the spelling of your student's name on this list. This is the list that the certificates will be printed from. If you notice that your student's name is spelled incorrectly, please send me the correct spelling ASAP!
