Natoma's Pruter is a 2018 American FFA Degree Recipient

FFADylan Pruter of Natoma is a 2018 American FFA Degree recipient.

The National FFA Board of Directors approved the 2018 American FFA Degree recipients, and a record number are receiving the distinguished honor this fall.

Only FFA members who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to FFA and made significant accomplishments in their supervised agricultural experiences are eligible for the American FFA Degree.

At the 2018 National FFA Convention and Expo in October, a record 4,255 FFA members will be recognized on-stage as American FFA Degree recipients.

The American FFA Degree is awarded at the National FFA Convention and Expo each year to less than one percent of FFA members, making it one of the organization's highest honors. Requirements to earn the honor are lengthy.

In addition to their degree certificate, each recipient receives a gold American FFA Degree key.

Pruter is only the second Natoma FFA member to receive the American Degree according to the Kansas FFA Association. Lloyd Oswald was a recipient in 1959.
