Lindee Mitchell Earns American FFA Degree

The Cassville FFA Chapter recently attended the 94th Annual National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis, Ind., where students learned about careers in the agricultural industry, competed for awards and discussed the future of the National FFA Organization.

During the convention, Cassville graduate Lindee Mitchell, class of 2020, received her American FFA Degree, which is the highest degree an FFA member can receive.

“I enjoyed being able to come together as a chapter and get to bond on a new level,” said Grace Yocum, Cassville FFA member. “We had an absolute blast together and made so many memories. I am so lucky to have fun advisors who made the trip an unforgettable experience.”

The National FFA Convention & Expo is the largest youth convention with nearly 55,000 FFA students from across the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
