Central Lakes College president Dr. Larry Lundblad was honored with the Honorary State FFA Degree.
At the Minnesota FFA Association Annual Awards Program April 25, Lundblad was one of a handful of people to receive the honor.
“It was quite an honor,” Lundblad said. “I grew up on a farm and was part of the agriculture community all of my life. We’ve done a lot of work at the college building the Ag Center and adding Ag as a program next year.”
