Sixty-five students competed tonight in the Floral Design CDE held at East
Jackson High School. I would like to thank Mr. Gilman, Mr. Whitworth and
Mr. Pedraza for working with us on the facilities. I would also like to
thank all the help I received from the students at East Jackson along with
Ms. Alyssa Maxwell, Ag Ed student at UGA.

We couldn't have done this without some very dedicated individuals who
offered up their evening to come judge the event. Ms. Jenna Naylor, Mr.
Dean Pannel, Ms. Kim McKinney, and Mrs. Deborah Fuller. We can't say thanks
enough to our judges.

*Please* take a moment to write a thank you note to florists who took time
away from their shops to spend with our students:
