Long County High School student Evan Strickland, son of Charlie and Emma Strickland, recently placed fifth in the region for his work with honeybees and honey production in the Future Farmers of America’s supervised agriculture experience competition.
Students enrolled in an agricultural education class are required to complete a supervised agricultural experience in which they are able to apply their knowledge and skills outside of the classroom in an agricultural field to help them plan for their future careers, according to the National Association of Agricultural Educators’ website,
Evan owns two of the hives in his family’s honey business, which produces honey under the label CSEE.
Erin Vickers, Evan’s advisor, said she is proud of his hard work and hopes to see his success increase in the coming years so that he can meet his long-term goal of being able to provide honeybees as crop pollinators in the area.
