The late G. Lee Boyer of Bridger has been selected to receive the Honorary American FFA Degree. Boyer was elected as District 8 Director to the Montana Farm Bureau Board November 2016 and served in that capacity until he passed away in 2020.

This award is given to those who advance agricultural education and FFA through outstanding personal commitment. The National FFA Organization works to enhance the lives of youth through agricultural education. The Honorary American FFA Degree is 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. Members of the National FFA Organization’s board of directors approved the nomination.

Boyer will receive the award during the 2020 National FFA Convention & Expo, to be held virtually, in October. All recipients receive a plaque and medal, and their names will be permanently recorded as recipients of the highest FFA honor.
