National FFA recognizes MdCV’s Rice with honorary FFA degree

INDIANAPOLIS – Danny Rice, of Melvern, Kan., was recently selected to receive the Honorary American FFA Degree. This award is given to those who advance agricultural education and FFA through outstanding personal commitment. Rice is the longtime FFA adviser at Marais des Cygnes Valley High School, at Melvern.

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 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.

The National FFA Organization’s board of directors approved Rice’s nomination. He will receive the award at the 2016 National FFA Convention and Expo Oct. 19-22, 2016, in Indianapolis, Ind. All recipients receive a certificate and medal, and their names will be permanently recorded.

The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 629,367 student members who belong to one of 7,757 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
