Congratulations to these winners, all those who participated, and their
advisors. The top two placements in each division will compete in the
State Floral Design CDE on March 28. I want to give special thanks to Mr.
Doyle Floyd of Swainsboro High and Dr. Curtis Bourne of Ft. Valley State.
These men are often the hosts for Central Region CDEs, and work hard to
make the students and advisors welcome. I also want to thank all the
teachers that helped during the events; without their help, it would be
nearly impossible to conduct these CDEs.
