KISD: FFA Students Show Animals, Win Scholarships At Tarrant Jr. Livestock Show
Keller ISD’s FFA chapter sent 41 students show animals at the Tarrant County Junior Livestock Show on February 27-March 1, with 21 placing high enough to sell their animals at the live auction bringing in a total of nearly $30,000.
KISD’s students competed against hundreds of other FFA chapters and 4H clubs from across Tarrant County, with students exhibiting all species of animals including rabbits, chickens, sheep, goats, pigs, and cattle.
In addition to the $30,000 raised for students’ college use or for future animal projects, two students – Caitlin Cornish and Katie Whitfield – each earned a $2,500 scholarship.
