Latta FFA members Sarah Lane, Caleb Coleman, Kristen Herring and Doug Bowman will represent South Carolina in the National FFA Farm Business Management Finals to be held during the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana, in October, according to John W. Parris, state director of public affairs with the SC FFA organization.
They will be accompanied by FFA Advisor Aaron Miles who is the Agricultural Education instructor at Latta High School.
“The team took first place honors in the state FFA-sponsored Farm Business Management Career Development Event Finals held in conjunction with the recent State FFA Convention at Clemson University,” Parris said.
“The students and their advisor were awarded expense-paid trips to attend the National Convention by the SC FFA Foundation,” he added.
Caleb Coleman was the high individual scorer and Kristen Herring was the second high scorer in the state competition.
The mission of the FFA 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.
