Judson Ag Students Successful at State Contest
Judson High School made it's presence known at the 84th Texas State FFA Convention in Corpus Christi this summer. This year Judson's Ag program came away with five students receiving the Lone Star Degree. That is the highest degree of recognition that the state FFA organization offers. Students achieving this honor were Colton Barnes, Ian McCloskey, Jordan Trees, Olivia Huffhines and Kyle Ridenour. Requirements for the award involve academic excellence, instruction and community service.
Meanwhile, Judson students dominated the science fair awards winning two of three places. Tommy Fletcher won first place and will go on to the national competition later this Fall. Jordan Trees finished the top honors in the science fair by winning third place.
Rounding out Judson's participation in the state contest was Lauren Conant who sang in the talent show. She performed songs by Adele and Rascal Flatts. This state convention is really a culmination of a lot of hard work on every student's part as well as their families and teachers. To cap off the event, the Judson High School Ag program received a $500 grant to improve the school barn's roof from the Texas FFA Alumni Association.
