The Clear Creek ISD Livestock Show and Auction is a cherished tradition for students, teachers and the greater community.
“It’s inspiring, year after year, to watch how our community comes together to recognize our students’ devotion to their animals and other agriculture projects,” said Career and Technical Education Program Manager JT Buford. “This show of support demonstrates to our students the importance our community places on this critical industry and career field.”
Much has changed over the past 40 years, but some aspects of CCISD’s Agriculture programs, and the annual Show in particular, remain constant. Clear Lake High School agriculture teacher Kylie Smith was a student in the program nearly ten years ago, also at Clear Lake High School.
“As a student, I developed a great relationship with one of my former Ag teachers who pushed me and encouraged me to be the best version of myself,” said Smith. “He is one of the reasons I decided to become a teacher. I wanted to be as influential to someone as he was to me.”
The public is invited to come out to the CCISD West Agriculture Center to see Ms. Smith’s students, and students from all five CCISD high schools, compete to be named Grand Champion in their respective categories. Students will exhibit a variety of livestock, including steers, heifers, goats, rabbits, chickens and swine, as well as non-livestock projects such as floral designs, visual arts, food science and agriculture mechanics.
“The show may only run for a couple of days, but these students have spent months learning the importance of financial responsibility, time management and sportsmanship,” Smith said. “Some of my favorite memories from high school stem from my involvement in FFA and competing, and now it brings me so much joy to see my students making their own memories that will be just as special to them,” she said.
