Mr. YOUNG of Iowa. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and
congratulate Craig Sackett, of Menlo, Iowa, for earning the American
FFA Degree. Craig was recently awarded the degree at the National FFA
Convention and Expo in Louisville, Kentucky on October 3lst. Craig was
a member of the Nodaway Valley FFA Organization and is the son of Jeff
and Laurie Sackett.
The American FFA Degree is awarded to members who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to FFA and made significant accomplishments in their supervised agricultural experience. Craig had to meet certain requirements, such as studying agriculture for three years in high school, earning money in an agriculture field, investing that money into business, participating in community service, and displaying a record of outstanding leadership ability and community involvement. Craig spent four years in high school working towards this ultimate goal, and through his hard work and determination he was able to achieve it.
[[Page E1819]] Mr. Speaker, it is an honor to represent leaders like Craig in the United States Congress and it is with great pride that I recognize him today. I ask that my colleagues in the United States House of Representatives join me in congratulating Craig on receiving this degree and in wishing him nothing but continued success.
