West Prep FFA Rounds up Awards at SLC Fair!

Congratulations to all St Lucie Fair exhibitors and winners!  What a year for Ft. Pierce Westwood-West Prep FFA who’s final tally is impressive: 5- Grand Champion Titles, 2- Reserve Grand Champion Titles, 9- First in Class, 3- 2nd in Class, 3- 3rd in Class, 1st place Senior II Swine Record Book, 1st place Senior II Steer Record Book, 2nd Place Senior II Swine Record Book and more!

Mrs. Jenna Blankenbaker, FPW Agriscience Instructor shared, “If you see these kids, please congratulate them, they have worked hard for a year on their projects and it was apparent … I had a large number of people approach me … to brag on our students, how well they presented themselves, how hard they worked and their positive attitudes that they displayed. Once again, proud as always to be their teacher!!”

Congratulations to the Grand Champions: Reserve Grand Champion Senior II Grooming/Fitting- Allison Kohler, Grand Champion Senior II Showmanship- Allison Kohler, Reserve Grand Champion Senior I Grooming/Fitting- Elizabeth Rufo, Grand Champion Senior I Showmanship- Drew Wilson, and Grand Champion Sr. II Showmanship Swine-Mia Wheeler.

The students worked their tails off ALL year long and it shows!  Exhibitors not only take care of their animals two times a day, EVERY single day (raining, hot, holidays, etc.) but they complete a record book, write buyers letters and thank you letters, visit businesses and try to find buyers for their animals, etc. These projects teach our students LIFE SKILLS, that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Livestock projects teach students humility, work ethic, financial responsibility, time management, goal setting, etc.

Congratulations exhibitors: Elizabeth Rufo- First in Class, Nayeli Fernandez (chapter steer)- First in Class, Allison Kohler- First in Class, Yesmin Rodriguez- First in Class, Drew Wilson- 2nd in Class, and Kassia Jancosko- 3rd in Class.
