FFA Banquet, Sports Banquet, and This Week

The Eustace FFA Chapter held its annual awards banquet this past Friday. The banquet provided an opportunity to acknowledge the many accomplishments of our students this year. I would like to congratulate all of the members of the FFA for another great year! For the past several years, Eustace has done extremely well in all aspects of FFA competition. It has taken many, many hours of work and dedication from our students to make this happen. These accomplishments would not be possible without the help and support of parents, grandparents, and other supporters of our FFA program. Finally, I would like to thank our FFA sponsors, Theresa Tindel and Gregg Pruitt, for all their hard work and dedication this year. Pictures from the banquet will be posted later today.

The Eustace Sports Banquet was held this past Saturday at the First Baptist Church in Eustace. All the High School sports were honored at this banquet. An overflow crowd turned out to honor our athletes. I would like to thank the Booster Club and parent volunteers for all their work in preparing for this banquet. The decorations were absolutely great!! Pictures form the banquet will be uploaded later today. Students receiving individual recognition are listed below:
