Henderson County Livestock Show

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to go on a guided tour of our Ag projects and animals at the Henderson County Livestock Show. Steve Stegall, one of our Ag teachers, provided a very informative tour of the Eustace projects. At this time, I do not have full results from the Henderson County Show, but I did get an opportunity to take a few photographs of some of our students’ projects. The photos are below.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the people that played a part in helping our students with their animals and their projects. I was very proud of both the quantity and quality of all our students’ projects.
