ALDINE – Even in these challenging times, the show went on for Aldine ISD’s FFA (Future Farmers of America) students. Although the number of projects was down from the previous year, FFA students could show off their animals. The Aldine community rewarded the students with funds for college scholarships and future projects thanks to members of the Aldine community who purchased projects during the Sale of Champions on Friday, Jan. 29.
“I want to thank all of the students, their parents, and our outstanding Ag teachers who participated in this year’s event,” said Franklin Higgins, Director of Career and Technical Education. “And I also want to thank our Board of Trustees, Superintendent Dr. LaTonya M. Goffney, members of her Executive Leadership Team, and the Aldine community members for their continued support of our students.”
Nimitz High’s Delana Temple raised the Grand Champion Steer, purchased by the New Construction Group for $12,500. Briana Faulk of Davis High School raised the Reserve Grand Champion Steer. The Aldine Noon Optimist Club purchased it for $7,000.
