CHANNELVIEW – Saturday, April 17, 2021, the Channelview High School’s Future Farmers of America (FFA) brought out a host of the school’s various student classes and groups to participate in the FFA parade and day’s events.
FFA teachers Wesley Hutchins, Brooke McCauley and Channelette Director Suzanne Hutchins had their students enter cooking contests, parade and float contests, vehicle and marching group contests, and contests for showing their cows, pigs, goats, rabbits, chickens and horticulture exhibits.
Judges graded each category and presented awards to the students, many of those shown were auctioned off to the highest bidder.
The event raised $135,000, which will go towards helping students further their ambition in farming and ranching.
