On July 14th the Eagle Pass FFA Chapter traveled to Fort Worth to the 86th Annual Texas FFA Convention. Students competed at the state level in speaking competitions, compete in a talent competition, received their Lone Star FFA Degree, and serve as voting delegates for our chapter. Alexis De La Garza competed in the State Soil Stewardship in where she prepared 5-7 minute speech over a topic related to soil and placed 9th. Karina Garcia competed in the Spanish Creed Speaking where she competed against 48 other students from around the state of Texas and placed 3rd. Dustin De La Garza had an outstanding performance in front of 8,000 people but came short with votes. Dakota Betancourt, Larissa Buentello, and Bertha Alicia Torres all received their Lone Star FFA Degrees.
Congratulations to these fine individuals, the FFA program, and of course the CTE program for supporting the students of EPISD.
