Best of Barns - 2023 FFA Chapter of the Year

Today, there are 945,988 FFA members in 9,163 chapters in all 50 states, and more than 13,000 FFA advisors and agriculture teachers deliver an integrated model of agricultural education. Shallowater FFA has — members. An ag teacher’s position provides students with innovative and cutting-edge education and enables them to grow into competent leaders. At Shallowater FFA, the three instructors are doing just that. Head Ag teacher Rob Hawkins, Ag Science teacher Tyler Hatley, and the Ag Mechanical Teacher Rebecca McEndree love their kids and help them be the best in their passions. This is an overview of their year and all of the hard work this chapter has put in!

Early in the year, Caroline Munson and David Kendrick were the San Antonio Ag Marketplace Grand Champions and recipients of a $7,000 scholarship. They had the unique opportunity to sell their livestock sprayer at the live auction. This was just the tip of the iceberg – it gets better.

In the springtime, FFA members partake in Career Development Events, which include all of your typical judging contests, and Shallowater was not absent with their successes.

It was all due to hard work, perseverance, and a push to improve. They had a great day at the Texas FFA state CDEs. Dairy Cattle was 4th Overall team, David Kendrick was 3rd High Individual, and Milk Quality was 3rd Overall team, with Riley Klatt placing 5th High Individual.
In 2023, the chapter’s achievements were diversified. AJ Kendrick and Kate Munson both received the American FFA Degree, the highest honor for an FFA member on a national level. Their involvement in production agriculture, leadership, and community service all culminated on the national stage.
In the summer sun comes all the FFA fun! Shallowater joined the rest of Texas FFA at the State Convention. Texas FFA is the nation’s largest state FFA association, with more than 179,931 members.
Several individuals were recognized for their achievements, including runner-up Jud Bowe, who won his division, and David Kendrick, who placed second in his division and was awarded a $16,000 Rodeo Austin Scholarship. Gracie Potter received a $20,000 Houston Livestock Show Scholarship, while Jud Bowe was awarded a $10,000 Jim Bob Norman Ft. Worth Scholarship. Caroline Munson received a $20,000 San Antonio Livestock Show Scholarship. Additionally, eight members were awarded the highest degree in Texas, the Lonestar degree, based on involvement, community service, and leadership.
Into the fall and at the start of every school year, FFA members partake in Leadership Development Events or, as we know them, LDEs.
There are 179,931 FFA members in Texas, of which 21,000 participated in LDEs last autumn. Shallowater’s Public Relations team performed exceptionally well, securing second place in the State Finals, while the junior skills boys also presented impressively in the semi-finals of the State contest. The future looks very promising for this team. It is worth mentioning that these talented individuals from Shallowater FFA are the 2023 National Champions in Ag Issues!
Over the past year, this chapter has achieved remarkable success, thanks to the dedication and hard work of all those involved in its activities. From the advisors who have provided invaluable guidance and support, to the kids who have shown an exemplary level of commitment and enthusiasm, this community has truly excelled. We are proud to have been a part of this journey and look forward to seeing all of them flourish in their future endeavors. Congratulations to the 2023 FFA Chapter of the Year, Shallowater FFA.
