Center FFA members attend State Convention in Corpus Christi

Center FFA traveled to Corpus Christi, TX July 13th-17th for the Texas State FFA Convention. Nine Center FFA Members enjoyed five great days of leadershipbuilding skills, meeting some of the 10,000 Texas FFA members and teachers who attended the convention and even got to have a little fun in the sun! 


Those attending were Alec Lucas, Taighen Mathews, Whitlee Reed, Nate Morris, Madison McMillan, Emma Locke, Kaden LaRock, Zack Fausett, Merari Gonzalez and Advisors Brittany Hall and Jessica Shadix.

We would like to congratulate several students who were recognized for their outstanding accomplishments:

Alec Lucas and Taighen Mathews received their Texas State Lonestar Degree. What does this mean? Well, let's break it down. There are over 109,000 Texas FFA Members across the state. Alec and Taighen were 2 of just over 2,000 members of those 109,000 to accomplish this prestigious award! Congrats to these amazing students!!

Merari Gonzalez competed in the Spanish Creed Speaking contest against the top 50 contestants in the state. Merari recited the FFA creed and answered 3 questions about its meaning in Spanish. She was judged on her presentation and her understanding of the Spanish language. Because Texas' population is so diverse they are trying to incorporate the many
interests and cultures of our students. She did a great job representing Center FFA!

Students have also had the opportunity to learn about Texas diversity of agriculture by touring the Texas State Aquarium and the TPWD CCA fish hatchery. 


Overall, the week was an amazing learning experience of bonding, growing and having a blast!
