Quicks to receive honorary degrees from FFA

T wo Granville natives will receive honorary American FFA degrees this week. The National FFA Organization will honor Ken Quick Sr. and Diane Quick with the awards, given to those who advance agricultural education and FFA through outstanding personal commitment, according to a press release.

The Quicks will travel to the 85th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis from Oct. 24 to 27 to receive the honor during an onstage presentation. All recipients will get a certificate and a medal, and their names will be permanently recorded.

“We’re very excited about it,” Ken Quick Sr., said.

The National FFA Board of Directors describes the honorary degree as 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.
