JISD AgriScience Program: Upgrades and Success

The Judson High School AgriScience has been around since 1959 and it has been active and flourishing ever since.  Students even today continue learning not just the latest techniques of raising livestock for today's consumers, but responsibility, time management and working together as a team for the greater good.  

There have been a number of upgrades, improvements and renovations that have helped make the students involved in the Ag program more successful and more efficient in what they do with animals and equipment.

During the last several weeks of regional and county competitions, more than 75 percent of students and their animals placed in their respective categories. That's pigs, chickens, lambs, goats...well you get the idea. That means they move on to the San Antonio Livestock Expo ( S.A.L.E.) and earn significant scholarships.  This is a 25 percent increase in S.A.L.E. participation over last year.  

The investments in our students do make a difference and this program is a prime example. It's with the support of the JISD Board, Administration and dedicated teachers that this happens...Thank you.
