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.
