Team members from left to right: Katrina Alford (advisor), Adrianna Loper, Samantha Turner, Amelia Sauls, and Tyler Youngblood
This past Saturday, February 4, the Florida FFA State Middle School Horse Evaluation Career Development Event (CDE) was held in Gainesville, Florida.  The Horse Evaluation Career Development Event is designed to stimulate the study of, and interest in, equine science selection while providing recognition for those who have demonstrated skill and competency in this area.  Middle school FFA teams traveled from all across the state to compete for top state honors and I am very excited to announce that from a field of 38 middle school teams, SunRidge MS FFA won 1stplace!
SunRidge MS FFA is the 2017 State Champion!  To make this even more exciting, this Agriscience/FFA program is only in its 4th year and this is their very first state championship.  It requires enormous teaching and learning to earn this honor, so we say a BIG congratulations SunRidge MS FFA Horse Evaluation Team and Ms. Katrina Alford, FFA Advisor, on earning this fantastic accomplishment.  We know this is the beginning of many more student learning successes yet to come.
By earning this top CDE state honor, SunRidge MS FFA will be recognized and awarded their team trophies on stage at the Florida FFA State Convention this June.
