Taylor Loeffler (pictured below), a LHS junior and FFA Chapter Secretary participated recently in the annual June Texas A&M Livestock Judging camp held last week where she placed 2nd overall and 4th in giving evaluation reasons.
Taylor also participated in the annual 4-H Roundup and out of 134 participants in Livestock Judging, she ranked 11th overall after tie- breakers. Taylor is the daughter of Lee and Tina Loeffler of Lampasas.
Also last week, five Lampasas County FFA members were approved to receive their Lone Star FFA degree. The students award applications were evaluated June 9th at the annual Texas FFA State Record Book and Awards check held at Tarleton State University. County Agriscience teachers Dr. Steve Forsythe and Brad Barnett served on state- wide selection committees with Forsythe on National Proficiency awards and Barnett on scholarship selection.
The Lone Star FFA degree is awarded to high school juniors who met state criteria based on their participation in leadership, community service, and their supervised project programs. Recipients must also have at least $1,000 dollars earned and or hours combined to meet state requirements.
These students will be honored at the annual State FFA Convention to be held July 11- 15 in Dallas.
The FFA students selected were Lampasas FFA members Breighton Loeffler, Braedan Raub, Caul Smith, and Quint Smith; and Lometa FFA member Jesse Patterson.
