John Robert Trimm, Jr. recognized as State Star Greenhand

Orlando, Fla. – The winner of the State Start Greenhand is John Robert Trimm, Jr. of the Bronson FFA Chapter. Trimm was recognized at the 84th Annual Florida FFA Sate Convention.

Trimm has worked diligently to be profitable in his Supervised Agricultural Experience project. Trimm has started his own business, growing and selling caladium bulbs and plants.

Trimm was proud of his ability to become financially independent getting the business started.

“I grow caladiums for wholesale, and most FFA members borrow money from their parents in order to get their business started,” he said, “but I borrowed a loan from the United States Department of Agriculture.”

Receiving the State Star Greenhand award has not stopped Trimm from making plans to continue and expand the business.

“I signed some contracts with 17 different grocery stores in my area, and next year I am going to get into a larger corporation in the Southern states with about 3,000 locations,” Trimm said.

Trimm said he would like to tell FFA members just beginning their SAE projects, “It doesn’t matter if your funds are limited or if your land use is limited. You can find a way to work it out, and you can make something of yourself even if everyone else doesn’t think you can.”

Trimm hopes to attend the University of Florida to pursue degrees in horticulture and business.

Students must apply for the State Star Greenhand award by submitting applications to the Florida FFA Association. Candidates are then visited by a panel of judges who select one star in each degree category: Discovery, Greenhand, Placement, Agribusiness, Agriscience and Farmer.

Other candidates for the State Star Greenhand were Landon Smith of the Bronson FFA Chapter, Austin Lenn Davis of the Bunnell FFA Chapter, and Harold Tillis of the Chiefland FFA Chapter. This award is sponsored by Walpole, Inc.

Catherine Bowman announced as State Star Farmer

Orlando, Fla. – The winner of the State Star Farmer is Catherine Bowman of the Santa Fe FFA Chapter. Bowman was recognized at the 84th Annual Florida FFA State Convention.

Bowman has a diverse and well-rounded Supervised Agricultural Experience project. From working with her goat production and equine science SAEs to her forage production and armyworm agriscience research project. Bowman recognizes that agriculture is hard work and time consuming, but extremely rewarding.

With her goat production operation, Bowman has increased her herd size from six to 170 and continues to show her goats across the country at shows in New York, South Carolina and Kentucky. She strives to make her goats more “meaty” for her buyers and those who also show her goats.

But Bowman enjoys her equine science SAE the most.

“I have been riding horses since I was 7,” she said. “I love showing hunter jumpers, and one day I want to do the big Grand Prix jumper shows. I just love everything about the equine lifestyle.”

In addition to showing her horses, Bowman also trains younger horses.

With her forage production SAE, Bowman works on an 80-acre hayfield farm cutting coastal Bermuda grass for square and round bales.

Bowman’s armyworm research project has saved 10 local farmers a combined $617,000 in fertilizer and crop loss costs. By predicting the reproduction cycle of the armyworms in costal hay, Bowman was able to help farmers cut potential crop loss costs by establishing an effective method to kill the worms before they could harm the crops. She plans on reaching more farmers through her local extension agent.

With the knowledge Bowman has gained, she hopes to one day share it with her children and “keep the farm in the family.”

Bowman plans on attending Santa Fe College in Gainesville, with the potential to transfer to the University of Florida to attend veterinary school.

Kinsey Ward Honored as State Star Discovery for Supervised Agricultural Experience Program

Orlando, Fla. – Kinsey Ward of the Chiefland Middle FFA Chapter was honored as the “best of the best” as State Star Discovery for the Supervised Agricultural Experience Program. Ward was honored at the 84th Annual State FFA Convention.

Ward is involved in many activities that qualify her for the Discovery Star Award, including bookkeeping and pecan farming. But Ward said showing pigs was her favorite because of the competition, socializing and traveling opportunities.

“It’s life for me,” she said. “I mean living on a farm, it’s stuff I have to do everyday.”

“Some advice I’d have for future FFA members would be to keep at it,” she said. “Don’t give up.”

Since she joined FFA in the sixth grade, Ward said she’s wanted to run for subdistrict, district and state office. She said if she gets elected to state office she would run for national office as well. She wore her Uncle James’ 1950s national state officer ring to convention.

She hopes to attend the University of Florida to become either a veterinarian or an agriculture teacher.

John Burnsed Honored as State Star in Agricultural Placement for Supervised Agricultural Experience Program

Orlando, Fla. – John Burnsed of the Baker County Sr. FFA Chapter was honored as the “best of the best” as State Star in Agricultural Placement for the Supervised Agricultural Experience Program. Burnsed was honored at the 84th Annual State FFA Convention.

Burnsed’s home sits on 40 acres in rural Baxter, Fla. A portion of the land wasn’t being used, so he and his father thought they should put it to use.

“Me and my dad thought maybe we could make this golf course, and we can give the youth something to do out there that would be productive,” he said.

He said the 9-hole golf course they built is unique because it’s the only course within 40 miles.

Burnsed is enrolled at Florida A&M University. Six years from now, he said he hopes to have a doctorate degree in pharmacy. Along with the pharmaceutical courses, he wants to take golf course management and environmental courses.

“I will return and keep working on this golf course to make it more and more environmentally friendly and keep it open,” he said. “It’s something that I really enjoy doing.”

He said that the ideas that surprise you could turn out to get you an award. Burnsed’s advisor was hesitant of the golf course idea at first.

“Nothing is out of bounds,” he said. “Nothing is out of your reach.”

Students must apply for the State Star awards by submitting applications to the Florida FFA Association. Candidates are then visited by a panel of judges who select one star in each degree category: Discovery, Greenhand, Placement, Agribusiness, Agriscience and Farmer.

The award is sponsored by William E. Hamm & Associates, Inc., and Richard and Yolanda Joyner.
