       The Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition, Inc. is proud to announce its newest Agricultural Ambassador
       team for 2009/2010. This year’s Ag Ambassador Team will include Lainie Velasquez of Coral Reef High

       McFarlane of William Turner Technical School who hopes to attend the University of Florida as a Zoology
       major; Ricardo Muniz also from Coral Reef High School, who would like to attend UF and study
       Agribusiness and Zoology; Meylin Aoun of John A. Ferguson High School, who hopes to work on her

        The Ag Ambassadors are an elite corps of students selected from 4-H and FFA club members who serve as
       a link between urban fair visitors and Miami-Dade County’s rural agricultural background. Through their
       hard work and dedication, these young adults have earned the opportunity to continue to enrich the history
       of agriculture and are recognized by the Intl. Association of Fairs and Expositions as an award-winning
