Students Shine at Pasadena Livestock Show

Students Shine at Pasadena Livestock Show
Posted on 10/02/2020
FFAEven through the uncertainty of a pandemic, Clear Creek ISD Future Farmers of America (FFA) students took a chance this year to maintain their passions for showing and exhibiting livestock and agriculture projects. These high school students recently competed at the Pasadena Livestock Show and Rodeo where some earned Grand Champion and Reserve Champion prizes for their auction projects.

“These students took a leap of faith to purchase animal projects and build projects not knowing if a show would happen,” said CCISD Career and Technical Education Program Manager JT Buford. “Their passion for raising and showing livestock kept their competitive spirits alive. These students proved that they are tough and will beat the odds time and again.”

Hours of work were put into raising or building each of these projects. Students are in the barns tending to animals before classes begin in the morning, and back in the barns working well into the evening each day.

“Each of my students who participated in the show raises multiple animals,” said Nicole Nosrat, Clear Brook High School agriculture teacher. “They are some of the most hard-working kids, not only in our barn, but in our school. No one guaranteed them a show or sale in the spring, but their determination, competitive nature and drive to be the best individuals they can be set them up for success either way.”

Grand Champion and Reserve Champion projects exhibited by CCISD students cashed in for $27,000, while the 19 projects in total that made the auction earned a combined total of $51,900.
