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 tech director Colin Falk, “The way that the season works is that a lot of our main shows are considered fundraisers, so all of the money we raise from ticket sales and concessions will go back into our budget for the next year,” Folk said. “Part of that budgeting is going towards the Fringe Festival, so naturally the more funds that we can raise with our tickets and the shows, the more money we have to help cut down the cost for everyone thats going.”
