These 11 Future Farmers of America pins were awarded to Edwardsville resident Kenneth Linkeman, who was the president of the Edwardsville chapter of the Illinois FFA. There is one pin for public speaking, one for soybeans, one for Chapter Star Farmer, three for small grains, and five that just have the FFA emblem.

These pins were scanned as part of a Madison Historical class visit to Civic Memorial High School in spring 2019. They were brought to class by Kenneth Linkeman's grandson, Keaton Linkeman.
