FFA awards Iowa Farmer degrees

On April 29 at the 2014 Iowa FFA Leadership Conference, five area youths received the Iowa Farmer degree, the highest degree bestowed upon anyone from the Iowa FFA Association. Only 5 percent of FFA members in Iowa receive this honor annually. Security Savings Bank’s Executive Vice President Brad Lane awarded a $250 scholarship to each recipient for their efforts in obtaining this degree: Alex Alliger, Curt Castenson, Taylor Hanson, Alexis Hanson and Clayton Taylor.
