The Judson High School FFA program has a fantastic reputation...only because it continues to produce excellent students with top quality projects year after year. Other schools know they have to bring their top game to compete against this FFA. In the recent FFA Area Contest, Judson's program was right up there placing in this very competitive event. The Veterinary Science Team placed 2nd and will be advancing to the state level while the Dairy Cattle Team placed 5th overall, but Tyler Bledsoe earned 1st place individual award. Their team also advanced to the state contest. Congratulations to these students as well as their advisors Lauren Henderson and Andrea Watts...and of course the head of the Judson Ag Program Mr. Jay Trees.
The Veterinary Science Team is made up of Marissa Nordland, Amethyst Godina, Amanda May , and Madeline Cerda and the advisor is Lauren Henderson.
The Dairy Cattle Team consists of Mary Pugh, Tyler Bledsoe, Mallori Johnson and Josh Borg and the advisor is Andrea Watts
One of the more popular events that helps raise money for the Judson FFA each year is the Drive-A-Ford fundraiser. Coming up May 2 from 8:30 am- 5:00 pm at the Judson High School parking lot. Just come by and spend a few minutes to check out and even drive a new Ford and Jordan Ford will make a donation to the Judson FFA. It's quick, easy and has impact. On top of that, the Judson FFA is partnering with Project Graduation to sell refreshments, and there will be a host of vendors there with booths that will be offering products from Scentsy, Pampered Chef, Posh, RBFCU and the Plaid Armadillo. Come on out, take a drive and help the Judson FFA!
Judson High School's FFA plant sale is a great event each year. The variety of color and types of plants for different uses in your yard is really amazing and it's all at the Judson High School Greenhouse. Don't miss it because it's Wednesday, April 8th from 3:45 pm to 7:00 pm. The JHS Greenhouse is right behind the PAC (Performing Arts Center).

2014 Judson High School graduate Jordan Trees received the American FFA Degree in Louisville, Kentucky at the FFA's 87 Annual Convention and Expo. This degree is the highest degree and honor that can be awarded to an FFA member. This is quite an accomplishment considering that the highest percentage of members ever getting the degree in any given year is less than one half of one percent. To get to this level of accomplishment in achievement and service, members must first receive the following degrees: Greenhand, Chapter FFA Degree and State FFA Degree. Jordan is now a student at Blinn College in College Station studying Plant and Soil Science. Congratulations to Jordan and much success in college and beyond.
