MCH youth compete in 2015 Heart O’ Texas Fair and Rodeo

Methodist Children’s Home School (MCHS) FFA chapter showed off their skills and conviction during the Heart O’ Texas Fair and Rodeo held Oct. 8-17, 2015, at Extraco Events Center in Waco. Their hard work from the semester was evident during the lamb, swine and steer show as well as the Ag mechanics competition.

For this year’s show, 31 animals and 11 shop projects were entered. The highest placing for animals went to students showing swine, with Drennon placing first in his class followed by Nadia, placing second. In ag mechanics, Chayce received first in his class for his four-bale hay trailer. Galen and Jacob also each received third place overall for their projects, a hog trap and deer skull lamp. MCH took third overall in sweepstakes out of 13 schools.

“I feel like the 2015 show was a huge success,” said Steve Kruse, Ag teacher. “The students all listened to the judges and understood what needed to happen to improve their project. Also this group of kids all came dressed in the proper attire to show animals. I applaud the case workers, home parents and Methodist Children’s Home administration for making this happen.”
