Fifty-two students competed last night in the Floral Design CDE held at Cass High School. I would like to thank Mr. Dean for working with us on the facilities. I would also like to thank all the help I received setting up from the the North Region staff. To the ladies who helped score the test and ID, Mrs. Holloway, Mrs. Webb, Mrs. Dysart, Ms. Jarrett, and Mrs. Cockburn, Thank You! We never would have finished as early as we did without your help.
I also had the best helper anyone could ever ask for in our Area 1 President, Emma Long!
Teachers, please do me a HUGE favor. If you and your students did not get a survey card last night, please print out the attached sheets and have your floral design competitors (and any other student who competed yesterday) as well as yourself fill out the appropriate survey.
We really want to use the data we collect to improve our CDEs.
We couldn't have done this without some very dedicated individuals who offered up their evening to come judge the event. Ms. Kathy Deitz, Mr. Art D'Ambrosio, and Mrs. Sue Smith. We can't say thanks enough to our judges.
Please take a moment to write a thank you note to our judges who took time to spend with our students:
