The Wolfpack

Posing for senior pictures, senior Callie Hobbs shows her dedication to FFA with her District Officer jacket. Hobbs started FFA in the fall of 2016 when she was in seventh grade, and as a Junior FFA member, she raised show swine and went to shows around the county as well and around Texas. “I wanted to take pictures with my cattle to show off the livestock projects that I have spent months training, preparing, and showing,” Hobbs said. “These pictures serve as a way to look back on past memories and to give me a chance to see what my animals look like when the judge sees them from a different angle. Sometimes it is hard to know what to change or fix about my animal until I can see them from a different angle, but it’s hard to do that when I’m walking them so the pictures can help to show me what to improve.”

According to McPherson, changing schools was very difficult for her since she went to a private school and went from a class of 35 to around 500 people, so she said making it into tennis was a bit harder when she moved, since there were more people. I took a break from tennis because I was scared I wouldn’t be good enough for making the team, but I got over my fear and tried out and I kept playing because it was the sport that I loved the most, McPherson said.
