Henderson County Livestock Show


Last week, the Eustace FFA Chapter competed in the Henderson County Livestock Show. The show is the culmination of the livestock show season. To say that our FFA members had success would be an understatement! Below is information furnished by Zach Tappan on the awards won by the Eustace FFA team. I would like to congratulate each and every student on their hard work and success this year! I would also like to congratulate our ag teachers, Zach Tappan and Theresa Tindel, for their hard work and dedication to making the Eustace FFA program the best around. Finally, a special thank you to the parent, grandparents, and all the other relatives and friends for their support of the Eustace FFA program.
