September 17-- Toombs County FFA member Raegan Thompson recently competed in the Area 4 FFA Floral Design Career Development Event.  The event was held at Southeastern Technical College in Swainsboro on September 14th. 

ImageThe Floral Design Career Development Event allows students to utilize the principles and elements of design.  Each student makes a floral arrangement and answers questions concerning floral design principles as well as identifies plant material and tools used in the floral industry.   Students use the principles of balance, proportion and scale, focal point, emphasis, rhythm, harmony and unity, and the technique of flower placement to create their designs. 

FFA is a national organization of over 449,000 members preparing for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture.  FFA is an integral part of the agricultural education program in public schools.  The FFA mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.

Raegan, a senior, is the daughter of Robin and Clint Jarriel and Tony and Crystal Thompson of Lyons.  Mark Montfort, Joey Montford, and Joey O’Neal are Raegan’s FFA Advisors at Toombs County High School. Mary Ellen Williams of Ideal Florist was Raegan’s florist mentor as well as her grandmother Mrs. Glenda Rushing.

The FFA Floral Design Career Development Event is sponsored by the Georgia State Florists Association as a special project of the Georgia FFA Foundation.
