    Overall, Cedar Key School’s FFA Chapter earned trophies in nine contests this year – not too shabby for the smallest public school in Florida. Only the top five teams in the state in each contest are invited to be on stage during the awards ceremony. There are about 16,000 FFA members statewide.

       Denny Voyles is the FFA advisor for both chapters (middle and high).

       “I am so proud of the accomplishments of our FFA chapters here at Cedar Key. We all work very hard to earn these awards,” Voyles said.
