VMHS FFA students Excel at the South Texas Agricultural Roundup

The Veterans Memorial FFA Chapter participated at the South Texas Agricultural Roundup (STAR Show) this past week. Students earned ribbons, banners and belt buckles and they all did a great job exhibiting their livestock projects. Twelve students exhibited market hogs, lambs and goats. These FFA members have worked diligently for the past 5 to 8 months with their projects and were very appreciative of having been given the opportunity to exhibit their projects at the county level. Some of these students will also be exhibiting at the Rio Grande Valley Livestock Show during Spring Break. Below are the results of the South Texas Agricultural Roundup (STAR Show):
