    Mr. Byars does a tremendous job, year in and year out. This is the most premier chapter in the State of Florida. Mr. Byars’ leadership, dedication, and love for his students shines through, as the students step forward to excel in all aspects of the FFA program. It was a pleasure to help chauffeur a van of these students again this year. All are an awesome group of young adults. Parents you have done a great job instilling American values into your children. Northview is extremely proud of Mitchell Singleton as a new state officer and state speaker winner, our American Degree graduates, our alumni, our ninth grade winner over the entire state, and our other chapter-as-a-whole awards.. What outstanding accomplishments for our school, our community, and our school district. Thank you Mr. Byars, alumni, students, parents, and supporters throughout our area.
