Roma ISD Students Show Prize Lambs

 

The Palm Valley District FFA Livestock Show on January 22, 2019, was a great success for Roma’s FFA. For the second year in a row, Roma FFA had a member receive Overall Grand Champion Lamb. The students earned trophy buckles and embroidered carryon bags as prizes. Rebecca Canales became the fourth student to earn a trophy buckle under the lamb program.   

 

Mario Canales, Kaylon Ramon and Bryan Izaguirre have won multiple trophy buckles over the last three years and Rebecca Canales won a buckle at the show. Between the students mentioned, they have won between 17-18 trophy buckles and between 11-12 champion banners under the lamb program. 

 

Jason Izaguirre is a 4th grader and this is Jason’s first year showing and his second show ever. No doubt he will be a prize earner very soon.

 

These students have had their lamb projects since June 2018 and in the show ring, it was easily noticeable that the Roma students have spent time with their animals as they handled their lambs with ease which enabled them to rise to the top of the show. Congratulations to the following students:

 

Rebecca Canales – Overall Grand Champion Lamb – Roma High School

Mario Canales – Overall Reserve Champion Lamb – F.J. Scott Elementary School

Kaylon Ramon – Breed Champion, Finewool Lamb – Roma Middle School

Bryan Izaguirre – 3rd in class – Roma High School

Jason Izaguirre – 4th in class -RT Barrera Elementary
