FFA Sub District Results

Destiny Blackmon, Tyler Brannan,, Savannah Rosales, Ryan Yates

Congratulations goes out to our 2 FFA sub district winners!

Ryan Yates took 1st Place in Tractor Driving  and will go on to compete in January at the District contest held at Warner University.  Good luck Ryan!  Destiny Blackmon placed 3rd in prepared public speaking!

We also had Savannah Rosales compete in the Creed speaking contest and Tyler Brannan gave his first try at extemporaneous public speaking.

PEF Scholarships

A SAR (Student Aide Report), generated by completion of the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aide) will be the only type of financial verification we accept and is now required to apply for all scholarships administered thru the PEF. It can take several weeks for a FAFSA to be processed and the subsequent SAR report issued, so students need to complete this online form ASAP to ensure they have it back in time.

College Bound Bloodhounds!

We are very excited to share that great things are continuing to happen as we prepare our students for College, Career, and Citizenship, at Auburndale Senior High School!  As of this morning, we have had a total of 99 college acceptances and our scholarship offerings are already totaling $1,712,528!

Here are our latest:

Angelique Boyd; Bethune Cookman University
David Lugo; USF & Florida Southern
Jenica Louis; UCF, USF, Jacksonville, Bethune Cookman


Today Chad Langford with Horace Mann presented a check to Lieutenant Commander Young and our NJROTC program to fully fund their flight simulator!

This is a very big deal as it will eventually lead to possible college level classes and credit for our NJROTC program.  Not to mention it is just very cool.  We had five of Horace Mann’s area leaders on campus along with the community relations department from the district to present this surprise.
