Congratulations to Kristyn Kramer for being named to the Florida High School Athletic Association's Florida Dairy Farmers Academic All-State Team!

Selection to the Academic All-State Team is an honor that only 24 student-athletes in Florida get to boast. Team members exemplify the true meaning of being a student-athlete by excelling academically, performing athletically, and contributing to their community.

The 23rd annual Florida Dairy Farmers Academic All-State Team will be awarded a total of $50,000 in scholarships – a $10,000 increase from last year. A total of 12 girls and 12 boys from all over the state will receive scholarships.

“Our goal is to honor not only the Sunshine State’s top athletes but also its brightest minds,” says Florida Dairy Farmers CEO, Michele Cooper. “We’re excited to support a program that has a great tradition of encouraging excellence on the field and in the classroom and we’re proud to support students that have the special mix of work ethic and determination required to succeed at both.”

In order to be considered for this esteemed honor, students must be a graduating senior who received a minimum 3.5 unweighted GPA while earning letters in at least two FHSAA-sanctioned varsity sports their junior and senior years. This year the FHSAA received 127 qualifying Academic All-State applications. Nominees were scored on their academic record, athletic participation, non-athletic activities, community activities, and essay.

Each Academic All-State Team member will be recognized at a commemorative banquet on Monday, June 12 in Gainesville, FL. Each student honored will receive a $1,700 scholarship. Out of the 24 All-State Team members, one male and one female will garner the title of “Ron Davis Scholar-Athlete of the Year,” the FHSAA’s most prestigious honor bestowed on any active student-athlete. The winners of this award will earn an additional $4,600 in scholarship funds – $6,300 in total.
