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:
