The Missouri Future Farmers of America (FFA) has given an honorary state FFA Degree to a Missouri State faculty member.
Dr. Christine Sudbrock, an assistant professor at the William H. Darr College of Agriculture, has been with MSU for nine years.
“I have loved working with FFA students throughout the southwest district and at the state level,” Sudbrock said in a statement. “Being chosen as a degree recipient is truly an honor.”
Sudbrock was an FFA member while in high school, serving as an area president and was a recipient of the state outdoor recreation proficiency award. The proficiency awards recognize specialized skills that can be used in future careers.
“I credit my time in FFA for helping me develop into the leader I am,” Sudbrock said. “I made countless dear friendships that last even today.”
Missouri FFA has almost 26,000 members in 384 chapters.
