By West Kentucky Star Staff
MAYFIELD - A Graves County High School agriculture teacher has been honored with an FFA Degree.

Kelvin Howard recently received the “Honorary American FFA Degree” at the 91st National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The National FFA Organization presents the award to individuals who advance agricultural education and FFA through outstanding personal commitment. FFA works to enhance the lives of youth through agricultural education. Without the efforts of highly dedicated individuals, thousands of young people would not be able to achieve the success that, in turn, contributes directly to the overall well-being of the country.

The Honorary American FFA Degree is an opportunity to recognize those who have gone beyond valuable daily contributions to make an extraordinary, long-term difference in the lives of students, inspiring confidence in a new generation of agriculturalists. Members of the National FFA Organization’s board of directors approved the nomination.
Howard received the award at the 2018 National FFA Convention and Expo during an on-stage ceremony Friday, October 26th, in Indianapolis. Each recipient receives a certificate and medal. The National FFA Organization places their names in the organization’s permanent records.
The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to some 669,989 student-members. Each belongs to one of some 8,630 local FFA chapters, located throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Some 344,239 alumni members in 2,051 alumni chapters through the U.S. support FFA.
