DeKalb student receives school’s highest ag award

Dakota Howe of DeKalb High School was recently presented the school’s highest agricultural honor, the DeKalb Agricultural Accomplishment Award, sponsored by Monsanto Company.

Howe, the son of Gene Howe and Karshone Penn, received the award for excellence in academics, leadership and agricultural work experience. Howe’s experiences have included competing at the State Ag Mechanics CDE after qualifying in Ag Power. He also is the FFA president for the DeKalb chapter. Sarah Peterson is Howe’s agricultural education instructor at DeKalb High School.

This year the DeKalb Agricultural Accomplishment Award celebrates is 67th anniversary. Over these 67 years more than 168,000 high school seniors from across the country have received the award, which has become a symbol for excellence and the school’s highest agricultural honor.

As the winner of the 2014 award, Howe’s name will be recorded on a permanent plaque displayed at DHS.
