Hi!  My name is Adriane Barnes.  My two major loves are children and animals.  One of my most rewarding jobs was working as a Georgia 4-H Program Assistant, because I was always around children and animals.  My favorite hobby is horseback riding.  I own a 17 year old mare, Chase, who in her younger days used to race professionally.  Another hobby of mine is atttending retriever hunt tests with my cousin, David Barnes, who owns Cedar Hill Kennels.  And, I  am sure that by these colors you can guess that I am a BIG Seminole fan!  My dad played football for FSU, so it is the only team that is allowed in the house.  Go Noles!!

I am from the big city of Cairo, Georgia.  It is the home of the mighty Syrupmakers!   We are also known for our syrup and pickles.  I have always wanted to see America.  My plan is to go on a cross-country trip after I graduate from college.  The Grand Caynon, Yellowstone National Park, Nashville, Tennessee (the Country Music Hall of Fame especially), and  the historic sites in the New England States are the main places I want to visit. 

I graduated from Bainbridge College with my associates degree in Early Childhood Education.  I am currently a junior at Valdosta State University in the Early Childhood and Reading Education program that has been brought to Abraham Baldwin Agriculture College.  I have really enjoyed this program because it has allowed me to work as a paraprofessional at Len Lastinger Primary where I have gotten great experience working in the school setting.
