Members of the Floresville FFA competed this fall in several Leadership Development Events. Teams competed at district, area, and state contests.

The Agriculture Advocacy team of Kaitlin Casanova, Kristin Greer, Emily Hoelscher, and Alex Morris placed fourth at the district contest. This team’s task is to promote the agriculture industry to a target audience and this year’s audience is to promote safe and wholesome food supply.

This year’s Greenhand Creed speaker, Mikaela Talley, placed seventh in district competition. Mikaela had to recite the FFA Creed by memory and answer questions about it afterwards.

The FFA Broadcasting team of Bailey Pawelek, Haley Wares, and McClaine Pawelek placed sixth at district competition. The task for this team is to present a mock radio program on a current agricultural topic. Their topic was the drought from 2009 to present.


The FFA Public Relations team of Rachel Miksch, Brielle Brown, Julie Rakowitz, and Taylor Wall placed second at district and first in area competition, qualifying the team for state.

The goal for this team is to present a presentation to a target audience and to convince them to join the FFA. This year’s target is a parent student orientation group.

At the state contest, they placed third in the semifinal round and ninth in the finals. This is the seventh year in a row a Floresville FFA Public Relations team qualified for area, the second consecutive year to win the area contest, and the third consecutive year for a team to qualify for state.

These FFA members did a wonderful job representing Floresville FFA and Floresville High School. For more information about the FFA, contact the Floresville High School Ag Department at 830-393-5370.
