Milton, FL – The Santa Rosa Education Foundation announced Kaylen Findley, a 7th-12th grade Agriculture teacher at Jay High School, as the 2016 Santa Rosa Rookie of the Year during their Rookie of the Year Reception Wednesday afternoon. She was selected from a field of 32 educators with three or less years of teaching experience who were honored at this event. The Gulf Breeze Area Chamber of Commerce presented Kaylen with a $500 Sara Caudell Scholarship. 

“It is Kaylen’s commitment to her students and her ability to guide children instilling leadership skills with high morals and values that helps to make her program successful. The enthusiasm she projects can be seen in all aspects of her FFA program, speeches are given with purpose and intent, animals are lead with pride, and officers expect to be the best in the area. These students are growing into accomplished young adults, this is a direct result of Kaylen Findley’s efforts and guidance in and out of the classroom.”
