The FFA Public Relations team competed Friday and Saturday at Sam Houston State University in the Texas FFA State Leadership Contests. Team members are Julie Rakowitz, Taylor Wall, Brielle Brown, and Rachel Miksch. In the semifinal round on Friday, we competed against 9 other teams from all over the state and placed 3rd. That qualified us to compete on Saturday in the finals. On Saturday, we again competed against 9 other teams from all over the state and we placed 9th in the finals.
This is the 3rd year in a row for our FFA Public Relations team to qualify for state and 6th time overall. We have qualified for the finals every year we have competed at the state contest. There were 314 teams that competed this year at district contests all over the state and Floresville has the 9th best. The competition level is extremely high in Texas and qualifying for the finals in the state contest is an extremely great accomplishment. When you reach this level, the difference between the teams is very little.
