Once again, the Aldine community stepped up to the plate and came through in a big way for Aldine ISD FFA (Future Farmers of America) students.

Aldine ISD employees and business partners pledged $202,000 to student projects during the Sale of Champions, which concluded the 63rd annual FFA Livestock and Art Show, held Jan. 26-28 at the M.O. Campbell Educational Center.

Nimitz High School junior K’Ven Horn raised the Grand Champion steer, purchased by the Superintendent’s Group for $12,000. Classmate Delana Temple raised the Reserve Grand Champion steer, purchased for $5,500 by the Optimist Club.

“It really means a lot to me,” Horn said after his steer Deebo earned the Grand Champion honors. “It makes me proud that this proves I did a good job of showing him. This experience has given me a lot of confidence.”

Ojeda named Aldine head coach

Cirilo Ojeda Jr. has been named the new head football coach at Aldine High School. He comes to Aldine after serving as head coach at Sharpstown High School in Houston ISD.

Cirilo Ojeda Jr. likes a challenge and that’s one of the main reasons he gladly accepted the opportunity to become the new head football coach at Aldine High School.

Ojeda comes to Aldine High after serving as the head coach at Sharpstown High School in Houston ISD for the last two years.

The Mustangs have struggled as a program the last few years, and Ojeda is focused on turning things around, and he’s aware it won’t happen overnight.

“I want to accept the challenge to get back to where this program has been,” the University of Houston graduate said.
