The Area 4 Senior Prepared Public Speaking CDE was held yesterday at Burke County High School.  A special thanks goes out to Andy TenHuisen and Catrina Kennedy for hosting the cdes.  The hospitality, judges and facilities were great.  Lauren Bazemore from Screven County High placed 1st and Mary C. Cromley from Southeast Bulloch was 2nd.  These two young ladies will represent Area 4 at the state cde held during the State FFA Convention.  We wish them good luck as they pursue their goal of winning State Prepared Public Speaking.  Other FFA members competing were:  Brooke Hutcheson of Treutlen High, Nikki Connell of Wheeler County, Caleb TenHuisen from Burke High, and Kalinda Hathorn from Greenbrier.  Congratulations to all that competed and again thanks to Burke County High Ag Department for hosting the cde.
