Lauscher, Ivan W. (FFA Honor Award - 1971)

The highest honorary degree awarded by the State Future Farmers -- that of Wisconsin Farmer -- was awarded to Ivan W. Lauscher, retiring superintendent of the Neillsville Public Schools, during the organization’s convention at Green lake. The award was made Tuesday.

The award was made in recognition of Mr. Lauscher’s 29 years of service to the Neillsville School District, as principal and superintendent, and his service to agriculture at Neillsville High School.

“Mr. Lauscher always recognized agriculture as an important part of the total school program,” Richard Quast, Neillsville agriculture instructor and FFA chapter advisor stated. “He always encouraged a well-rounded program and was fully in favor of the change to semester classes in agriculture in the last year to permit a greater number of students to take particular semester courses of greatest interest to them.

“The Neillsville FFA is appreciative of Mr. Lauscher for all the support he has given, and wish him the best of everything on his retirement,” Mr. Quast said.
