Alexandria Epperson Participates in Area FFA Event
Fannin High School FFA member Alexandria Epperson recently competed in the Area I FFA Floral Design Career Development Event. The event was held at Cass High School in White, Georgia, on September 28, 2017. Alexandria Epperson will receive a bronze award at the Area I Region banquet.
The Floral Design Career Development Event allows students to utilize the principles and elements of design. Each student makes two floral arrangements and answers questions by a panel of judges concerning floral design principles. 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 600,000 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.
Epperson, a sophmore, is the daughter of Randall and Karen Epperson of Epworth, Georgia. Cherie White is Fannin County High School FFA advisor. The Fannin FFA Chapter also extends a special thank you to N & N Florist in Blue Ridge, Georgia for their help in learning the floral design principles.
The FFA Floral Design Career Development Event is sponsored by the Georgia State Florists’ Association as a special project of the Georgia FFA Foundation.
