Madison Strain

Hey everyone! My name is Madison Strain and I am excited to be serving as your 2023-2024 Orange County Federation Sentinel!

I am currently a junior at Horizon High School where I proudly serve as the chapter Vice President. This is my 6th year as an FFA member and my 5th year as an officer. I have competed in a variety of CDEs and LDEs. My favorite CDEs are Horse Evaluation and Veterinary Science and my favorite LDE is Parliamentary Procedure. In my free time, you can find me practicing for one of the various sports I play at school such as swimming, weightlifting, or flag football. You could also find me in the bee yard tending to my bees or working at Chick-fil-A. My SAE project is beekeeping where I manage 10 beehives and sell the honey that is produced. I have also worked with other beekeepers and sold a couple of nucs to help maintain the population of my bees as well as help a new beekeeper start their apiary. 

I am beyond thrilled to get to know all of you and serve as your Orange County Sentinel!


My SAE project is one of my favorite things in FFA and agriculture. I love working with my bees and helping such important creatures in our ecosystem. I have been working with bees for a little over a year now and have managed to grow my apiary to 10 hives!  


FFA has taught me life lessons I would not have learned outside of this organization. FFA has also guided me and shown me what I want to pursue as an adult and will help me get there through all of the experiences and opportunities that are offered. I love all of the memories that are made and the lifelong friends I have met through FFA. 

Let's keep in touch!
