INDIANAPOLIS (August 17, 2021) – Dr. Kristin Stair professor in the Department of Agricultural and Extension Education and Evaluation at Louisiana State University was selected to receive the Honorary American FFA Degree.
This award is given to those who advance agricultural education and FFA through outstanding personal commitment. The National FFA Organization 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 nation.
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 agriculturists. Members of the National FFA Organization’s board of directors approved the nomination.
Stair will receive the award during the 94th National FFA Convention & Expo, in Indianapolis, Ind., on October 29, 2021. All recipients will receive a plaque and medal, and their names will be permanently recorded as recipients of the highest FFA honor.
