Miss Fulton County's Outstanding Teen 2020
Elizabeth Sanders is a ninth-grade honor roll student at Dodge County High School. She is active in her church, Siloam Baptist Church, where she has been singing solos since the age of 4. She enjoys sharing her love of music at other churches and organizations. She plans to continue to share her talents as a vocal performer. Upon graduation, Elizabeth plans to attend Auburn University to pursue a degree in Animal Science and then become a veterinarian.
Elizabeth has been involved in 4H since 3rd grade when she first found her love for showing livestock. Since then, she has competed in many different 4h and FFA competitions, and she strives to educate others about the importance of agriculture education.
Elizabeth is passionate about her platform #AgricultureEducation. She travels the state (at times with her cow in tow) to spread her love of agriculture and to spread awareness about the importance of agriculture in our daily lives. She has partnered with the Georgia Department of Agriculture and the Georgia Grown program to promote our state’s #1 industry agriculture!
She has also partnered with Georgia Farm Bureau to promote their Farm Passport program which encourages people to visit Georgia’s farms and learn more about the many agricultural products we produce. Elizabeth also visits schools to encourage participation in programs such as 4H and FFA, and she is promoting Senate Bill 330 which provided for a pilot program to place agriculture education programs in elementary schools.
Elizabeth is also passionate about raising money and awareness for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Elizabeth has had 2 cousins, Katie and Madeline, to be diagnosed with brain tumors. Both have received care from Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital in Atlanta. Elizabeth has seen first hand how important these hospitals are to families.
Elizabeth is looking forward to being on stage for Miss Georgia’s Outstanding Teen this June!
