Central Middle School Agriculture Student Wins Top Honors at State FFA Convention

May 07 2021

Central Middle School agriculture students recently competed at the 93rd Georgia FFA State Convention, and Asher Ayers won the State Small/Specialty Animal Production Middle School record. Earlier this year, Ayers won the Area 1 competition for the second consecutive year.
There are only nine categories that middle school FFA members are eligible to compete in, and CMS won best in the state in one category and were in contention for four additional categories.
Lucas Brock, agriculture educator at CMS stated, "The 93rd GA State FFA Convention was a remarkable experience for our Chapter. Our Chapter was recognized eight times during the in-person session of the event and was also fortunate to have its first state winner. I find it difficult to describe just how proud I am of Asher. The work that he has and continues to put into his honeybee operation is remarkable. Whether it is splitting hives to prevent swarms or spinning the honey frames so that he can package the honey to be sold, Asher always goes the extra mile to ensure he is doing everything he can to be sustainable and profitable. I couldn't be prouder of Asher and all of our FFA members at CMS for the hard work and eagerness they have demonstrated this year in learning about agriculture, developing impactful agricultural-based projects, and taking part in the National FFA Association!"
